Devon and Cornwall - A TV success story

Devon and Cornwall - one of the most beautiful parts of the UK but in the past perhaps not the first port of call for TV programme makers and commissioners. Lockdown has changed all that. Channel 4’s Devon and Cornwall series made by True North has been pulling in record audiences of over 2 million for the first in series.  South West indies have felt the benefit with a raft of commissions with series like Twofour’s Cornwall and Devon Walks with Julia Bradbury  featuring on ITV .
