Cumbria-set TV drama The A Word to get second series



27 May 2016 8:31AM

A popular television drama set in Cumbria looks set to return to the small screen.

Millions of people tuned in to watch Christopher Eccleston star in The A Word, on BBC 1 this spring.

Set amid the striking Cumbrian countryside, viewers tuned in week-after-week to follow the story of the Hughes family as they battled to come to terms with their son Joe's autism diagnosis.

The first episode of the Peter Bowker-written series attracted 4.7m viewers, and so audiences will be thrilled at the news that a second series has been commissioned.

Charlotte Moore, acting director of television, said: “Following BBC Drama's tremendous start to the year, it is clear audiences are looking for even greater ambition and high quality.

"So I want to continue to expand our range even further and reaffirm my commitment to commission the very best drama in the UK.

Cumbria Tourism Awards winners revealed



Ullswater Steamers, Ambleside's Waterhead Hotel and Low Sizergh Barn near Kendal were among the winners at the Cumbria Tourism Awards last night.

Nearly 400 guests, the great and the good of the county's hospitality sector, descended on Cartmel Racecourse for a black-tie dinner and awards ceremony compered by comedian Justin Moorhouse.

The awards, in their 14th year, celebrate the achievements of one of the county's most important business sectors, worth £2.6bn a year, albeit one still licking its wounds in the wake of the damage inflicted by Storm Desmond last winter.


Winning businesses had to show they are providing memorable visitor experiences, an exceptional quality of product and exemplary customer service, and making a contribution to the long-term sustainability of their local community.

In addition to the regular awards, the 2016 Bernard Gooch Tourism Personality of the Year Award was awarded to Nigel Wilkinson, managing director of Windermere Lake Cruises, for the outstanding contribution he has made to Cumbria.

Chef Chris stars in BBC contest



12 October 2016 5:52PM

The head chef at Cottage in the Wood on Whinlatter is cooking up a storm in BBC Two's Great British Menu.

Chris Archer, 28, of Station Street, Cockermouth, is originally from Yorkshire and has been taking part in the North East section of the competition this week.

Chris was initially approached to take part in the programme in 2014, but didn't make the cut.

He was then contacted again last year and was given his chance to compete after another contestant pulled out.

The show, which is currently airing on weeknights on BBC Two, was filmed in September and October 2015.

Chris is one of 24 chefs competing in the show, with three contestants from each of eight UK regions taking part.

A PENRITH gardener who has created a magical outdoor space centred around a tree house has been recognised in a national competition.

Cathy Harrison was crowned runner-up in BBC Gardeners' World Magazine's Garden of the Year Awards, which celebrated the best private gardens in the UK.

Her garden, which was ranked among the top three Best Family Plots, will feature in the magazine's November edition along with the other winners and runners up.

Cathy, 35, said she was "surprised" to have her garden ranked so highly and that she hasn't always been a hands on gardener. But when she and her husband Giles moved to their home near Penrith two years ago they inherited a large outdoor space, with lots of different areas - including a 100-year-old Japanese garden, with stones, steps and pathways.

"We were lucky to take on such a lovely garden and it had been really well looked after," said Cathy. "We wanted to make it more family orientated."

Giles, 34, designed and built the tree house between two weeping willow trees for their children, Charlotte, six, and four-year-old Sam. The impressive structure has a slide and split layers inside with different seating areas.

Helen Skelton and Countryfile return to Cumbria to explore popular beauty spot



Cumbria's own Helen Skelton has brought hit BBC show Countryfile back to the county to explore one of the area's most popular beauty spots.

Watchtree Nature Reserve, to the west of Carlisle, is the focus of an upcoming programme to set to be aired on Sunday, February 5.

Producers are working on a special bird-themed episode and were attracted to the nature reserve after hearing about a striking starling murmuration that gathers there.


"We have an estimated 50,000 starlings roosting here. It's pretty impressive to see," said Ryan Dobson, Watchtree's access and recreation officer.

The BBC camera crew arrived to film the episode on Wednesday and while they were at the reserve they discovered there was far more to the site than natural beauty.

Cumbrian duo to star on BBC in new food show






Cumbrian duo to star on BBC in new food show


Business partners Luke Christian and Timothy Cottingham are hoping they’ll be toasting more than the ingredients for their new cereal after they appear on prime-time TV next week.

The entrepreneurs are set to feature on the BBC2 show Back to the Land on Tuesday.

The programme focuses on rural businesses and the people behind them.
The founders of Wigton-based muesli company Lakeland Mues have been followed by cameras since their start-up last spring.

Since then, they have agreed deals to supply a range of shops, stores and hotels in Cumbria and south Scotland with their upmarket cereal, as well as Cranstons and Pioneer.

Tim said of Tuesday’s screening: “We’re looking forward to it, we think it will be very funny seeing us in start-up mode.

The Voice talent scouts choose tiny Cumbrian village for auditions

Jolan

Talent scouts from The Voice have chosen a village brewery as the only place in the north of the county to hold auditions in the search for future stars.

The Brewery Tap, at the family-run Ennerdale Brewery, will host an open mic event next month, with those who impress in with a chance of singing live for the panel of coaches including will.i.am in next year's show.

But only 60 singers will be able to audition during the four-hour time slot and it will be on a first-come-first-served basis.

COUNTRYFILE presenter Adam Henson visited a South Lakeland farm to spend two days filming and learning about 100 years of traditional farming methods and a special breed of cattle.

The Robinsons have farmed at Strickley for generations, and their knowledge of their breed and methods saw them picked out by the show's producers to feature as they turned their cows out for the first time this year.

Old Hutton film maker seeks location for new horror feature



A SOUTH Lakes film maker is on the lookout for a Cumbrian location at which to film the trailer for a new horror feature.

Rick McLeod, of Old Hutton, needs a derelict rural house to use as the setting for his forthcoming film 'Gemini', which he will be promoting in Los Angeles later this year.

The film, which was written by Mr Mcleod's associate Chris Torrento, focuses on twins with a sinister history behind them that comes back to haunt their home town.

Mr McLeod, who runs Celtic Storm Films with his wife, said: "It's more than your typical slasher style horror film, it focuses on the dark corners of the mind, often playing tricks in a sinister way. "Finding ideal locations is quite an exciting task as anything from old houses or factories and warehouses always prove beneficial in atmosphere.
