Cornish born and bred but disappointed by this series
on 18 April 2012
I was born in Cornwall and grew up there. Now transplanted abroad I bought this DVD so I could sit back and enjoy vicariously a trip through my home County. I was sadly disappointed. Although the filming is stunning and shows Cornwall in all her beauty I found the repetitive nature of the programming very annoying and having watched Disc 1 which featured the Lindos Vineyard on two successive episodes I couldn't believe it when in episode 1 of Disc 2 we went back there again! It had begun to feel like each episode was pushing a certain restaurant, vineyard or farmer producing heirloom tomatoes on us! It began to feel like the programmes were simply vehicles for advertising these businesses.
Cornwall is steeped in legend, stone circles, prehistoric sites etc. and none of these were shown. I love the County but this series is downright boring. I have three more episodes to watch on Disc 2 and I swear if they show Lindos Vineyard again I will scream.
