Film Editor: Nigel Buck

Series Editor: Tim Martin

 

Earth Pilgrim takes viewers on a journey through the seasons of Dartmoor and explores our deep and profound relationship with the natural world. It is an Eastern view of the West, seen through the eyes of Satish Kumar who is a Jain monk and a world-renown conservationist and pacifist.
This film is a 'meditation on the moor'. It portrays an engrossing account of Satish Kumar's philosophy and reverence for the living Earth. According to a BBC Wildlife Magazine review, "our leaders should make his insightfulness an integral part of their manifestos. It would be a better world if Bush applied some of Kumar's principles - and meant them."

You'll probably have seen similar sights in documentaries but you'll never have felt their impact so acutely.

some truly spectacular cinematography

We relax in front of my laptop (the telly and video are delightfully lo-fi) and watch a DVD - it's a forthcoming BBC programme about Dartmoor through the seasons and for once I've got a press preview copy. It is so mesmeric we can't wait for tomorrow's walk.
