Hello Mary,
There are dozens of DVDs on the camino – not only the Camino Frances. A quick search on amazon.com will offer a variety of DVD's.
Buying one is not that straight forward! Most are only available in Spanish. Others have English sub-titles. Some DVDs can only be played in different Zones – or on different systems. I think the US system is NSCT and the European is PAL and then the Zones run from 0, 1, 2, 3 etc etc. Some new DVDs are recorded on DVD+ and others on DVD- so will play on some players but not on others. You can buy DVD players that are zone free, code free, multi system players but these might only play on "multi system" televisions. Complicated huh?

These are some of the DVDs and CD’s that I have on the Camino Frances.

CD Rom : "La Meta del Camino" -
Camino de Santiago: by Everest in Spanish. Video on the Camino Frances.
El Camino de Santiago – English - cartoon
The Naked Pilgrim – English
Santiago de Compostela: Art and History – English.
The Pilgrims’ Route to Santiago – English documentary made in 1998
Las Peregrinas, The Women who walk – Sue Kenney’s documentary
Oh Ye of Little Faith – Paul Tobey
El Camino de Santiago – no un camino de rosas – English subtitles.
The Way Within Without – English
Welcome - including interviews with hospitaleros in various albergues

You can buy DVDs from the Confraternity of St James – http://www.csj.org.uk Click on Bookshop and then on DVDs
Or http://www.arteguias.com/camino-santiago.htm

There are hundreds of videos on YouTube – including this 97 minute documentary in Spanish.

And Paul Tobey's entire 45 minute movie. http://www.paultobey.com/free-movie

I am sure that the Consejo Jacobeo will release new DVD documentaries to coincide with the 2010 Holy Year.

Hi there, Can anyone tell me if there is a Documentary DVD available and if so where I can get it please? Many thanks
Hi Mary, Gunnar W, a member of this forum made a series of short documentaries on the Camino Frances and they are available to watch or download on Vimeo. They are excellent and give a great idea of what you will see on the Camino.
