Summary In Climbed Every Mountain: The Story Behind the Sound of Music, Sue Perkins tells the astonishing true story behind the real Von Trapp family, portrayed almost 50 years ago in one of the most popular films ever made, The Sound of Music.The 1965 blockbuster starring Julie Andrews has been seen by over a billion people and continues to captivate generation after generation with its unique message of love and innocence.However, Salzburg, where the story began, has only now hosted its first-ever performance of the musical. The program follows Sue to Austria to discover why the city seems to resent the film that put it on the map. She meets locals with memories of Maria Von Trapp and learns about her astonishing drive and determination that pushed the family to become a travelling singing troop for 22 weeks of the year.Sue also meets Nicholas Hammond, who played Friedrich, whose life has continued to be defined by the film, and she travels to Stowe in Vermont where the family settled to recreate a little bit of Austria of their own at the Trapp Family Lodge. Finally, Sue is privileged to meet 98-year-old Maria von Trapp, who is the last surviving member of the original seven children.The documentary includes rare and unseen footage from the 1950s, as well as beautiful home movies shot during the making of the film itself.(From the UK) (Documentary) CC Follow the conversation on Twitter #SBSdoco
