A SECOND series of a television documentary on Cornwall is set to be screened on ITV.

Comic actress Caroline Quentin, who has holidayed in Cornwall since childhood and lives near Tiverton in Devon, will again front the ten-part series exploring life in the county's communities.

Series one of Cornwall with Caroline Quentin enjoyed a peak audience of 4.6 million viewers earlier this year.


Each episode included stories about life in some of the county's most scenic towns and villages and characters from fishermen, shopkeepers, landlords and lifeboat heroes to local estate agents, chefs and food producers.

Quentin said: "Last summer I scratched the surface of the riches that Cornwall has to offer."

However many local people were critical of the show's positive spin and apparent concentration on relatively few people and places.

By contrast tourist officials were delighted by the prime-time coverage.

No dates have been confirmed of when the programme will be aired.
