A TV documentary showcasing some of Cornwall’s lottery-funded businesses will be aired on the Community Channel on this Sunday.

Brilliant Britain will also include footage from the Splash festival, which took place in September, and feature interviews with celebrity chef Rick Stein and food writer Lucas Hollweg.

Falmouth history graduate Holly Harwood presents the show with co-presenter Dan Norris, who have researched, filmed, presented and edited the hour-long episode.

It will be first aired on the Community Channel this Sunday at 8pm (Sky 539/Freeview 87).

It will be repeated for two weeks on Sunday evening and Monday morning at 7am.

“The series showcases all the brilliant projects in our communities and each fortnight two up and coming presenters were chosen to present from their own community,” said Ms Harwood.

“I would love to work on history programmes, and was contacted by the production team at the Community Channel after they saw a showreel of mine on Youtube.

“I am local to the county and both myself and Dan attended Penryn College.”

Brilliant Britain is Big Lottery-funded show.

The presenters wanted to showcase as many Cornish charities and projects that received the same lottery funding.

They chose two surf charities: The Wave Project and Surf Action, along with the Cornwall Blind Association, the Sensory Trust and Azook.

The documentary also features footage from Splash festival events at Dolly's Tea Room & Wine Bar in Falmouth.

“I also interviewed Rick Stein about his relationship with Falmouth before he talked about his new book at the Poly,” said Ms Harwood.

Indie Kitchen's live music session with The Paper Shades, which was recorded in their Cornish farmhouse kitchen will play out the show.

“We are very much looking forward to watching all of our hard work, as well as a sample of the hard work our Cornish community is up to on TV this Sunday.”
