We Are The Baye Fall: Pilgrimage of 5 Million in Senegal
We Are The Baye Fall follows three extraordinary characters, all dreadlocked Senegalese Muslims identifying as Baye Fall, who join five million followers on a pilgrimage called The Grand Magal. Join characters, Ami, Bara, and Bas, as they embark on a spiritual journey to the holy city of Touba, revealing a kaleidoscopic human spectacle almost completely unreported in the global press. *French and English closed caption subtitles available Subscribe to Journeyman here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_center?add_user=journeymanpictures Modu, a learned Baye Fall who lives under a French colonial cannon on the former slave port of Gorée Island, narrates the fascinating history of The Grand Magal and the story of its founder, Cheikh Amadou Bamba. Bamba was a 19th Century spiritual icon who was banished from Senegal for leading a pacifist Muslim revolution calling for independence against the French. Bamba taught that the way to achieve self-sufficiency is to work hard to help other people. These lessons in non-violent community organisation are still vital to Senegalese identity to this day. The Grand Magal is a large-scale demonstration of this philosophy, as every single one of the five million who arrive to pay tribute to Bamba receive free food and accommodation, provided by the sweat, hard work and service of the Baye Fall. This annual event brings together an ever-expanding global movement, which offers an alternative way of living to individualist capitalism by putting the values of equality and unity into positive community action. *Correction* The Grand Magal commemorates Cheikh Amadou Bamba going into exile, not his return. *Note: All footage was shot before the COVID-19 pandemic. This year the pilgrimage will take place on the 6th October.

My Baby, Psychosis and Me Clip
My Baby, Psychosis and Me reveals the frightening rollercoaster journey of two mums, for whom childbirth triggers ‘Postpartum Psychosis’, one of the most severe forms of mental illness but from which there can be recovery with the right treatment. It is a condition most expectant mothers and their families have never heard of. But around one in every five hundred births can lead to the sudden onset of a psychotic episode. New mothers are overwhelmed by extreme low or high moods, strange and dangerous thoughts, paranoia, delusions such as the belief that they have given birth to Jesus or the Devil. This is the untold story of what it means to battle this terrifying condition. Filmed over six months, we closely followed the intense experiences of two women, Jenny and Hannah, and their families, as they are cared for at Winchester’s Mother and Baby Unit. Behind the closed doors of this specialist psychiatric ward, Dr Alain Gregoire and his expert team give women the care and intensive treatment needed to bring them back to recovery.

The Not So Secret Life of the Manic Depressive: 10 Years On - Clip
Ten years ago, in an award winning series, Stephen Fry first spoke about living with manic depression and began a national conversation about mental health. A decade later, we return to the subject to understand where he and thousands of others diagnosed with bipolar (as it is now called) are now - as a society, do we need to do more for those with the illness? Is the treatment better? Has the stigma reduced? In the new film we see how different people of all ages deal with bipolar. Looking at the changes of the past decade, he finds optimism in the increased awareness of the disorder, especially amongst the young. The film gives a powerful insight into living with bipolar – past, present and most significantly for all our contributors, future.
