Celebrated anthropologist and filmmaker Hugh Brody weaves a dazzling tapestry of personal memory and distant landscapes, from childhood in the Derbyshire attending Hebrew classes but sent to a C of E boarding school, to a kibbutz in Israel. Bewildered by the silence created by his concealed family history, he sought places of escape. It was only in the deep Canadian Arctic, a world so far removed from anything he had known, that he had a chance to learn what it can mean to be truly alive. With readings from Olivier-winner Juliet Stevenson.
