A nice film of the Montañasvacias has just appeared. Some memories for those of us that did the route in 2019 and something to look forward to for those planning a trip once things normalise.

If you’ve got GCN+, then Jack Thurston of Lost Lane fame has an episode on there and it’s a brilliant, light hearted programme to watch :-bd Well worth tuning in ( and I believe there are two more to come)

I think that paints a fair picture of BB land but I do reckon the Cambrians probably extends further than Llanidloes - Elan Valley .... especially as Dolgoch itself is somewhat south of Elan valley :wink:

Recent events had me confused about how the media machine works (and how they can remain blatantly arrogant and one sided). Went to check out my favourite ever media personality, John Pilger, (not sure but maybe Noam Chomsky sits right up there too) to see if he had any light to shed.

Found this, [The War you don't see] and it's brilliantly informative. For anyone that doesn't know, he's the journalist (in my eyes) that exposed the Aborigine barbed wired fences/camps in Australia. What a brilliant and brave human being!

Doesn't have to be watched in isolation :-bd

Oh, and the answer I was looking for is 'embedded journalism/journalists'.

Has anyone watched the soul of a cyclist? I was wondering whether it was worth watching.

Yes Tom Scott posts some interesting or weird stuff
I had a very interesting Sunday night and adventure trying finding Wheeldale YHA, firstly the road was very well lit, courtesy of the MOD, Fylingdales 'Dome' . Later I had to rely on by a dim green led & sickly yellow dynamo bulb. We couldn't tell the difference between wet asphalt or the grass verge. We arrive after 9pm. It was the mid 90's just before the remote rambling hostel was retired. It was powered by generator, cut off at 21:30hr. Were warned, we made tea then we're plunged into darkness.
Finding your room in the rambling hostel was interesting, by the same red led light made sure the fun continued at 21:01!
I hope you think you know, what I might of exactly meant.

Went to see Ken Loach's "The Old Oak" last night. Filmed in Easington Colliery (it's a village not a colliery) and incidentally where my step dad comes from why ay !
Typical KL ... brutally close to reality, like I, Daniel Blake
Uncomfortable watching, but not bleak, just holding up a mirror to Britain.

I really liked it.

Thanks for the reminder. Having been to see I, Daniel Blake and Sorry We Missed You, I'd like to complete the set.

Not a film but on BBC you’ll find Uncanny to get you in the mood of Halloween.
