MAK, Cimber and Little R,
Many thanks for your efforts for publicising this to the forum. I have just watched the whole thing and found it fascinating and thought provoking. I was so struck by how often Peter said 'we', very little I . A real sense of different people, cultures and languages and his engagement with them. As Peter said 'it is fantastic'. I think this is one of his huge contributions to bring these things together and to share/enable resources - and with such passion/love. Also revealing how many wonderful people and organisations on this planet work to improve the lives of others. It did help me to understand how Peter's creative time is taken up, though I admit at the end I thought 'and now for more music'! I agree about the train travelling, I've written more creative stuff on the train than anywhere else.
The clips nature of the film made it rather fractured but interesting nonetheless and I loved the old and new together. Amazing to see the various musicians and their native instruments - I'm just off to investigate Syriana and the Cambodian musicians. And seeing Peter playing the piano, talking! Definitely an unmined treasure on the whole! Great to hear about his ideas and passions ranging from: loving being near water and natural elements to communicating as citizens of the world.
I feel ignorant and enlightened at the same time and a desire to learn more. Thanks to the German producers and to Sussudio who must surely win some kind of medal!
I recommend it to everyone as a great taster of what is possible.

"It is fantastic"
These few Peter's words excited me very much,because his enthusiasm has a great value.
The value of a dream come true,the value of an Artist who believed in that dream,and the dream now is reality :-
We can always dream,and dreams are not so far. . . . thank you Peter.

Yes Dolce, very true. It was good to hear Mary Robinson at the PolarPrize ceremony refer to Peter's interest in the culture of many parts of the world. I think through him I have become interested in world music and ideas. We all take our own part in being a member of the world community. I love that fact, difficult though it may sometimes be.

Good bump, Cimber !
Alex watch this, and you can see me part 2 if you stop at exactly 7'33. . .
(to help you, I am like "standing" on the first Blue Ball, in black shirt and
holding a camera).
It is there were I could ask my "non question" to Peter, as you already know
(I am looking for the thread where I am telling this little story). . .
