Just came across this article. BBC Two is looking for people who are walking to Santiago de Compostela via the Camino Francés between 30th May – 2nd June. If so BBC Two wants to hear from you!
BBC Two is looking for people walking the Camino de Santiago between 30th May and 2nd June for a new documentary series.
The prime time series will explore the rich history of pilgrimage and its recent resurgence including by those who are not necessarily religious. BBC Documentary makers are looking for unusual and interesting stories to include in the programme.
Is there a special reason behind why you’re making a pilgrimage? are you doing the journey on an unusual mode of transport? or perhaps you think it can bring in a new perspective to your life? If so, they want to hear from you.
The Documentary will be filmed between 30th May – 2nd June so only pilgrims doing the Camino on these dates should get in touch. In addition, they will need pilgrims in the following locations on these specific days:
30th May: Starting out from St Jean Pied du Port or Roncesvalles.
2nd June: Pilgrims arriving in Santiago de Compostela and/or Finisterre.
Please send them a couple of lines explaining your motivations for doing your pilgrimage to bbc.pilgrimage@liontv.co.uk
Due to high volume of submissions, they will only be responding to some of the stories but they wish you well on your pilgrimage!
