Message from Mark Thomas:
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.
If you want to get involved, please let me know.
A news article from the local press:
Backwards Television is currently in the pre production stages of a six part documentary series called 'How Cornwall Changed the World', and is asking for help from the public.
Backwards TV, a new television production company based in Cornwall, is appealing to people who may have information to include in the series.
This series will be based around Cornish mining and how it influenced the modern world, featuring the discoveries and technical advances that happened here in Cornwall.
The film crew is looking for interesting stories, photographs, video, people of interest for interviews and locations.
A spokesman for Backwards TV said: "The series is be being shot in the height of summer 2014 so that we can show our county at its most beautiful. We have however already booked the first shoot date for Trevithick day on the April 26.
"The series is not linked to a specific broadcaster. The series will be made available to UK and International broadcasters upon completion, this format means we are able to maintain creative control on the content and style. We are aiming for first transmission early in 2015.
"The series shot will be using extremely high production values and it will be shot in ultra high definition, this gives the series longevity for the years to come therefore maximising repeat potential.
