Message from Rosina:

In commemoration of the upcoming Xacobean Holy Year, a New York-based TV production company is planning a documentary on the Camino to be shown on PBS. The preparations are in earnest, their cameras will be in Santiago at year's end for the opening of he Holy Door and filming on-site will commence early next year. For the purpose, the producers wish to contact pilgrims from America that will be either on the French Camino, or the Primitivo, sometime in February, March or April next year The filming crew will accompany pilgrims part of the way.
A couple in their thirties or forties would be ideal.
So, if you want to be on national TV (or know someone who does) and/or wish to do your bit for the promotion and benefit of the Camino that has given us so very much, do let me know and I'll forward your contact to the producers. This will be, I think, the very first time that a Camino documentary will be produced in the U.S.A.
Recent estimates lead the Pilgrims' Office to expect an average of 1,000 Compostela or Certificate seeking pilgrims next year per day and they will be needing volunteers, preferably with knowledge of Spanish, to help out in all sorts of things.

Update from Rosina:
Because it is not very likely that pilgrims from our shores will be walking the Camino during February, March or April, the producers of the PBS Camino documentary are now also considering filming June and July pilgrims (but no later than July) for their documentary. The reason for the time constrain is that filming must be completed in time for the documentary to be aired in August, or September at the latest.
Please let me know of you will be on the Camino at those times and I will forward the information to the producers.
By the way, they have just completed a PBS-commissioned documentary on the 13 cities in Spain that have been declared to be Universal Patrimony by UNESCO. Santiago is one of those cities, as are three cities in the Via de la Plata: Caceres, Merida and Salamanca.
The Camino documentary, however, will be filmed on the French and the Primitive Caminos.
Hugs!

ps. My only connection with the project is to put in touch interested pilgrims and the producers.

Karin I have to say it took me a few moments to translate from the American :) and to realise you were not talking about putting a donkey in a tin. Best wishes for your ambition to get the sack in order to walk the Camino again :)

Please let us know what strategy you employ.

Oh heck if I wanted it tomorrow.. I could probably have it! I'd simply have to acknowledge that working for school yard bullies isn't quite my cup of tea! But..I think my hubby might have a few things to say..and until all is in readiness for the next poor sod...I simply keep mum!

Sorry 'bout that Johnnie Walker...I forget that I can get..well a tad colorful on occasion...been hangin round my boys too much of late!

SO keep me in your prayers as I continue to search and research my way back to a.) humanity and b.) the camino!

Gracias, Karin

I contacted them about my camino in April, but they are looking for couples and apparently you must be straight too. Oh well. Their loss. :(
