Bureau of Lost Culture – The Life and Times of Peter Coyote: Part 1 (04/03/2023)
You’ve probably seen him in a film – he’s performed in more than 130 as an actor for some of the world’s greatest directors including Roman Polanski, Pedro Almodovar, Steven Spielberg and Steven Soderberg, or maybe you have heard his voice -he’s an Emmy Award-winning narrator of over 200 documentaries.
He is a writer, a poet, an ordained Buddhist priest who has been practicing Zen for over 34 years.
But that’s not the half of it – as we find out in this, the first of two episodes charting the extraordinary life of Peter Coyote. We did deep into the American counterculture, Hells Angels in London, heroin addiction, radical theatre groups The Diggers, the Free Family, the birth of the communes, mescaline and how the atom bomb created rock and roll.
