Many times in the past 25 years I have made the flight from Australia to London, and by train to Nottingham where I grew up. As my parents grew older I knew the time would come when I would no longer have the need to make that journey. The footage taken for ‘Traveling home’ was taken in 2019 to be with my mother for, what turned out to be her final days. It is the last time I can really think of that journey as going home.
