Bright Nights

Episode 4 of 4

Jarvis Cocker follows the long Icelandic summer night, communing with elves, looking for ghosts and venturing behind a sacred waterfall.

In the second part of his nocturnal Icelandic adventure, Jarvis goes on a journey through the long, light summer night. He meets Megas, the island's best known poet and rock and roll legend, who warns of wandering demons as he embarks on an overnight road trip.

Along the way he stops to hear ghost stories in Reykjavik's oldest cemetery, meets an elf seer in a lava field and is led to a sacred waterfall, behind which he makes a wish. But will he make it back before the hour of the wolf?

Producer Neil McCarthy.
