A party of seven Tibetan Lamas to appear in the prologue to the 'Epic of Everest' film, to be shown at the Scala Theatre, arrived in London on December 1. They were introduced to a gathering of London Pressmen by Captain Noel, kinematographer and a member of the last Mount Everest expedition, and by Mr. John MacDonald, son of the British trade agent in Tibet. The party is accompanied by Lhakpa Tsering, the lively little Tibetan-Nepalese porter. They give the prologue with their 16 ft. brass trumpets and small trumpets made of human bones.
