"Once he stood higher than anyone else on earth and almost 60 years on - in many parts of Nepal - Everest conqueror Sir Edmund Hillary remains a giant, revered for the schools, community programmes and health projects he fostered.

Hillary planned that after his death, his charity, The Himalayan Trust, would continue to provide assistance and developmental aid in Nepal.

But instead, it has torn Hillary's family apart.

101 East reports on how a family rift is threatening the legacy of Sir Edmund Hillary."
