Dummy Jim 

Back in 1951, a deaf factory worker who had never learnt to speak, set off on a cycling adventure from his home in Buchan, Dumfries and Galloway, Scotland. He took just a single blanket, a few jumpers and his diary. His remarkable adventure led him 3000 miles to the frozen plains of the Arctic Circle and now they are making a film about him, his journey and the friends he made along the way.

I believe that the working title for the film is Dummy Jim, the name by which our hero, James Duthie, was affectionately called by his friends and the film producers have launched an imaginative website in advance of making the film, providing an entertaining opportunity to explore Duthie's world.
