The unlikely pilgrims

'Nothings heals like a little distance' says the website of this Australian/Spanish documentary.
Directed by John Cherry and Kirsten Mallyon.
Playing time 1:30.



Four juniors, Dave, Amy and Chris had their problems in live. Together with counseller Ronan they walk the Camino de Santiago.

Limelight: The Unlikely Pilgrims is a triumphant tale about what can be accomplished if one has the courage to confront one’s own physical, spiritual and emotional limits.

"The Camino de Santiago is a centuries-old 800-kilometre pilgrim trail through northern Spain, attracting thousands of tourists annually. The pilgrims in this revelatory documentary – nine years in the making - are not, however, your usual hikers. Amy, Chris and Dave are recovering addicts. Ronan O’Connor, a drug and alcohol counsellor at an Australian rehabilitation centre, has agreed to be their guide, but not their therapist. He’s well aware that the trek will be a challenge for the trio, but is convinced that in order to move on, they need to take charge in the long haul through life and down the track."

The Pilgrimage BBC series

When it's on TV, they don't know yet, somewhere by the end of 2017..
No trailer yet either ;-)


But, the BBC is working on the show where they follow 'some celebreties' on their 15 day pilgrimage on the Camino de Santiago. 


"A new three-part BBC television series exploring pilgrimage will follow seven famous people as they embark on a 15-day pilgrimage along the Camino de Santiago in Spain."
"The series will combine "religious and spiritual debate" with "personal stories of self-discovery," the BBC said, with the physical challenge proving too much for some"



More on the site of AnglikanNews,

The series is part of a new religion and ethics programming for 2017 across BBC One and Two.
