010: Pathfinder Presents The Town That Didn't Stare
This week Pathfinder is featuring Nick Hilton's new show from Podot, The Town That Didn't Stare. There is a town in southern England, nestled between the ancient Ashdown Forest and the untamed beauty of the High Weald, called East Grinstead. Locals refer to it as "the town that didn't stare"; a place where you are not judged by what you look like or how you live your life. It's no surprise then, perhaps, that it's the the nexus of Britain's alternative religious scene: from the Scientologists to the Mormons, Opus Dei to Paganism, East Grinstead has it all.
We'll be back next week with an episode featuring Pixar, Jude Law and an inspiring grocery store line.
