Review

Writer, birdwatcher and radio producer Tim Dee is a solitary figure on the barren marshlands of the Wash in Lincolnshire, clutching his sound recording equipment as he records the wind.

Dee loves the wind, and though that might not make him sound like a wow at parties, he uses language beautifully: “Putting the world into words comes to you through the rhythms of your stride… best of all when you are on your own.”

Into the Wind could be classed as BBC4’s patented Slow TV, because nothing actually happens. But it’s a soothing, thoughtful piece of escapism as Dee talks about what the wind means to him, and shares a shocking, tragic event he witnessed on Clifton Suspension Bridge.

Summary

Writer and birdwatcher Tim Dee walks along the vast open flatlands of the Lincolnshire Wash, on a quest to capture the elusive sound of 'pure' wind. On his travels, he reflects on the landscape, walking, writing, birds and wind. From documentary film maker Richard Alwyn.
