A grizzled and grumpy hermit played by Jon Campling, holed up in a caravan, finds a reason to live again – thanks to an act of kindness by a teenager – in Oliver Murray's uplifting video for Midlake's The Old & The Young.

And it also offers a delightful glimpse of English countryside in summer, rather than underwater, with sterling work by DoP Jim Jolliffe and the steadicam of Rick Woollard.
