Our series of mini-documentaries continues today, as we meet the amazing Devilstick Peat.

Looking like a Mediaeval Fool straight from a storybook, Peat’s clowning has taken him around the globe. As a founding member of Kent Circus School, he can be spotted at schools and events across the land. But Peat also takes the remarkable step of venturing into the heart of conflict zones, so that the children in these troubled places are not deprived of laughter.

To hear more about the extraordinary Devilstick Peat, simply tune into Dominic King’s show on BBC Radio Kent this afternoon from 4pm, or click below:

Our thanks to Peat

Also, CLICK HERE to view Level Films’ breathtaking 4-min short about Peat’s visit to Beslan after the massacre. As befits the nature of Peat’s work, it includes some very moving footage, and is absolutely worth watching.

Peat also asks us to mention The Anne Harris Children’s Fund which helps fund his own remarkable work.

NEXT WEEK: Will & Ed are traversing Britain by foot; our adventure concludes as we camp with them in a Welsh forest…

    This is a wonderful combination of harrowing and touching. I’m going to have a make a cup of tea before watching that film.

    How was it to see a jester reciting UN mandates?

  2. You’ll probably need a cup of tea AFTER watching the film as well old boy.

    Jesters reciting UN mandates – you just don’t get this kind of broadcasting unless you employ the Bakery!
