The weather has been pretty horrendous recently but I have spent a fantastic two hours watching a real time reindeer walk, All Aboard! The Sleigh Ride. It was part of a slow travel series and shown on BBC4, and follows a couple of Sami girls in the north of Norway walking (and riding on their sleighs) with their reindeer on an old postal route.
It is such a gentle watch, devoid of anything modern – the way is lit by little fires. It was an absolute treasure, and if you are searching for the perfect antidote to Christmas excess but can’t get out for your own walk, I really recommend it. It’s still on BBC Iplayer for another couple of weeks.
