Tue 12 April 2016, 19:00 – 22:00 BST
Last year I took Hugh Purcell and his wife Margaret Percy,former BBC film makers, to Spiti.They were so impressed by the unique culture of this remote high Himalayan valley that they decided to commission a film to record it.
Hugh was Head of BBC Documentaries.He won a BAFTA for his series with Ken Burns on the American Civil War and has taught at International Film Schools in Denmark, Cuba, India and Eastern Europe.
They engaged Zena Merton, an award winning photographer, to record the unique Tibetan culture and the achievements of Spiti Projects Charity over 23 years.
