Wonderful television series about the Camino - The Naked Pil

#1
I added this in the guide section but I thought I would add here too in case people miss it:

I did the Camino last year and I wish I had seen this wonderful series first. Art critic and lapsed Catholic Brian Sewell follows the road to Compostela (he cheats and goes by car though!) and visits churches and pilgrim spots on the way. His journey is very moving and often amusing and really captures the spirit of the Camino and what it means to be a pilgrim. He sets off as a man presenting a tv programme and by the time he arrives in Compostela he questions his loss of faith. There is a beautiful and emotional climax by the sea in Finisterre. I was given it on DVD as a birthday present - it was made in 2003 so I'm sure it's still available. Has anyone else seen this? I recommend you watch it before you go.

I saw the series a few years ago - a friend in England taped it and sent it to me. I thoroughly enjoyed it although my friend said that most people 'take the piss out of poor old Brian' because of his accent and sentimentality.
All I remember of the end in Finsterre is that he was butt naked and we all saw .... well, his butt!

Yes! It's a very moving ending - made me cry! I've just had a look and you can buy it on a few websites - Amazon has it for £7.00. I expect it's the same version as mine. And he's done other travel series too!
