Totnes on the Television
By Ed Mitchell 18th August 2011
You might enjoy this evening’s ‘Town’ programme on BBC2 at 9pm. The last in the series, it looks at Totnes, and features, among other things, Transition Town Totnes.
Here’s what the programme’s website has to say about it
A Saxon river town in South Devon, Totnes is one of the UK’s oldest towns. It has seen tough times through its long history, but adversity has taught it to innovate. Geographer and adventurer Nicholas Crane visits the home of one of the greatest social experiments of the 20th century, and uncovers the test bed for an ambitious new idea that aims to change our urban life forever.
If you happen to be in Totnes, there will be a public screening tonight at the Seven Stars Hotel, beginning at 8pm, which will also be attended by the producers. If you miss both, you’ll be able to see it on BBC iPlayer for the next 7 days.
