In the 1980's, award-winning filmmaker and activist Peter Watkins began making a film about the international arms race, and the people around the globe who were working to avert the growing worldwide march toward mutual destruction. The result was The Journey, a 19 episode, 14-and-a-half hour epic that examined the threat of thermo-nuclear war, and the many faces of the burgeoning peace movement in the United States, Europe, the Netherlands, Canada, Mexico, the United Kingdom, Africa, the Pacific Rim, and South America.
