“Cornwall with Caroline Quentin began on ITV last night.
It was the first of an eight-part series featuring the actress 'discovering' Cornwall during summer 2011.
The 30 minute programme touched on food, wine-making, surfing and tourism, although questions have been raised as to its advertorial feel.
Caroline also managed to refer to Whitsand Bay as being an 'undiscovered corner'.

We had a huge response to the programme on our Facebook (facebook.com/thisiscornwall) and Twitter (twitter.com/thisiscornwall) pages.
On Facebook Rebecca Bulcraig said "to quote a friend it was a bit like a 'wall-to-wall infomercial', great PR for those involved and Visit Cornwall but I would have liked to have seen a bit more about the real Cornwall, history, legends as well as new businesses. Hopefully we'll see more of that in the future episodes."
Robert Catanzaro argued "give it a chance, our County really needs all the quality publicity it can get, our economy is very dependent on visitors. We are in a tourist trade war with the rest of Europe. It's light entertainment, not a in depth Panorama documentary. More like this please."
On Twitter David Parkin said "I love Cornwall but this programme is a clumsy advertorial and lacks heart."
Sue Evans said "Caroline Quentin prog like an advert for travel board. I bet they won’t come to Penzance town and see all the closed shops".
