Cornish film-maker Mark Jenkin has won the BAFTA for “Outstanding Debut by a British Writer, Director or Producer” for his film ‘Bait’, shot in Charlestown and West Penwith, using a hand- cranked camera and black and white film. Mr Jenkin said, “The team behind this film comes from a huge pool of creative people within Cornwall. The success of ‘Bait’ has already opened a lot of doors for me, but we just make a film we want to make, and then if we like it, I’m convinced there’ll be an audience for it. In May and June we’re shooting a horror film set in 1973 on an imaginary island off Cornwall, and filmed way down west. It should be ready in about 18 months time.”

The line-up has been announced for the Boardmasters festival this August in Newquay. Skepta, Kings of Leon and the 1975 are among the headliners, while the weekend also hosts surfing competitions. Dizzee Rascal, Mura Masa, The Kooks and Sam Fender will also be performing at this year’s festival, between 5 and 9 August. Boardmasters was cancelled last year because of storms. About 55,000 people were expected in Newquay last August, but organisers said the weather forecast was “too severe”. Organisers offered full refunds, although many revellers had already travelled across the country.

Hemm a styr bos moy ow hwarvos yn bagasow howlvorbleydhi es dell hevel yn kynsa; ny dhesedhons i an skwirglassans morvleydh avel preydher digoweth hag anserghek.”


According to research led by the University of Aberdeen, basking sharks might live in family groups. The scientists created more than 400 genetic profiles from swabs of skin mucus. Large groups of the sharks gather in the Irish Sea and the Sea of the Hebrides from May to October to breed and feed on plankton. Dr Catherine Jones, who helped to lead the study, said: “Relatives hanging out together could facilitate learning migration routes and encourage other cooperative behaviours. This means there’s more going on in basking shark aggregations than first appears; they don’t fit the shark stereotype of a lonesome independent predator.”

Cornish athlete Melissa Reid is preparing for the Tokyo Paralympics this summer. She hopes to add to the bronze medal she won at Rio in 2016. She has been a world champion in paratriathlon, duathlon and adaptive surfing, and is travelling to California on 8 March to take part in the world championships of adaptive surfing. Most of her training for running, cycling and swimming is done in Cornwall. She said, “I can’t just get comfortable with what I did four years ago: it would be hard coming away without a medal, but the standard of female athletes has improved so much in the past year, and it’s really good to see more people coming through to the sport. I’m so looking forward to seeing how much everyone can push this year.”
