Arnout Hauben (44) and his companions Ruben and Philippe have already left for a long hike. They are finishing the recordings from Straight through the Mediterranean, which were abruptly halted in March due to the coronavirus outbreak.
Last week, on one, you saw how Arnout, soundman Ruben Callens and cameraman Philippe Niclaes said goodbye to the GR129, the walking route that goes from Bruges to Luxembourg, after more than 500 kilometers. But the trio is not given any rest. With a backpack and with a mouth mask, they just took a plane to Southern Europe, to the place where they were in March for the new One program Straight through the Mediterranean. For that series, Hauben travels from west to east through the Mediterranean. The islands, the natural border between Europe and Africa, have been a melting pot of cultures for centuries. Hauben looks for stories about the sea and the islanders. Specifically, he travels from Gibraltar to Jerusalem, along well-known and lesser-known islands.
When the pandemic broke out, the trio was halfway through. Since at that moment the borders also closed one by one, there was nothing for it but to return home immediately. “We had a lot of emergency scenarios figured out, but the corona virus caught up with us time and again,” Hauben said earlier. Almost seven months later, they pick up the thread of their adventure in Malta, where they were then busy filing the fifth episode.
‘Right across the Mediterranean’ will be broadcast on One in 2021.
