Winter Walks: Alastair Campbell (S2EP2 BBC Four Tues 30 Nov 2021)



Alastair Campbell: The snow-covered hillsides of Ribblesdale are the setting for Alastair Campbell’s Winter Walk through the Yorkshire Dales. Fog and snow don’t deter the political veteran, as he makes his way through the county he was born and raised in.

Starting at a waterfall above the market town of Settle, Alastair descends into town, meeting local residents who are also out braving the weather.

Twisted trees and drystone walls line his route. The steep hillsides and dramatic views remind Alastair of the humbling power of nature. Talking about his mental health, Alastair describes the comfort he draws from being out in a landscape, and how time in this space can help him focus on what’s really important in life.
