Financial Times reviewer, Martin Hoyle, gives ‘No Destination’ a 4-star ‘Pick of the Weekend (Film, TV & Radio) review for our ‘Archive on 4’ programme for Radio 4. Writing of how Satish & his fellow walker trekked for two-and-a-half years on an 8,000-mile pilgrimage for world peace through the four nuclear capitals of the world, (Moscow, Paris, London and Washington D.C.). He says:

‘The story is as fascinating as it is unlikely. The Russians were ambivalent, giving them an unwanted lift in a plane, unwilling to let the walkers wander through the Soviet Union preaching peace. Tickets for the Atlantic crossing were provided by well-wishers – on the Queen Mary. They embarked on November 22 1963, the day John F Kennedy was killed, but delivered their peace tea to Lyndon Johnson. Kumar achieved his ambition to meet Bertrand Russell.’
