A new Channel 4 series focusing on life in Devon and Cornwall airs on Monday, featuring entrepreneurs from Penryn amongst many others.

'Devon and Cornwall' follows farmers, surfers and former miners to find out what how people live in the South West.

Jess Harris and Charlotte Whyte, who live in Penryn, are featured with their floating restaurant Blue River Table in the third episode.

The episode follows the launch of their new business, centring on how they hope to make it through the teething troubles of their first week after months of planning and hard graft.

Another Cornish name in the series is Lynn Batten, local handywoman who is shown completing last minute preparations at the Minack Theatre as tourists from around the world arrive for the triumphant season finale.

In Poldark country, former miner Les Rowe makes a poignant return to the mine where he laboured years ago.

But it is not just to reminisce – he brings with him the Cape Cornwall singers to Geevor to celebrate their shared heritage in song.

A production executive for Devon and Cornwall said: "In this brand-new series, we meet some charming people who reveal what it is really like to live and work in the far South West corner of Britain, where rolling fields meet stunning coastlines."

Devon and Cornwall will air on More4 at 9pm on Monday April 1.
