Hi all,

I am producing a TV Series about "How Cornwall Changed The World", It is based on Cornish mining history and I am appealing for stories, photos and ideas for the series.

Shooting begins at Trevithick day but then will pause until the height of summer (July/August). The series will be shot above and below ground.

There has been a press release set out to all local media organisastions and it is starting to gain publicity.

If you can listen to BBC Cornwall today between 3.30pm and 4pm you will hear an interview with me regarding the project.


A news article can be found here:
http://www.thisisthewestcountry.co.uk/news/cornwall_news/11148205.Can_you_help_tell_the_story__how_Cornish_mining__Changed_the_World__/

If you want to get involved, please let me know.

Will it say anything new or will it just trot out the usual time worn clich├ęs?

It will be a thorough treatment structured in a novel, but effective manner.

I was thinking more Delabole and the North Coast cliff quarries.
