1.   Dartmouth on TV every day

Do you watch the Alan Titchmarsh Show on ITV 1 weekdays at 3pm?  This most viewed daytime show will be featuring Dartmouth every single day next week, so don't miss it!

Alan, who is passionate about Britain and whose show includes features, music and conversations with celebrities and unsung heroes, also focuses on locally sourced seasonal British food.

Chris Jones of Dart Marina Hotel & Spa told Dartmouth dot TV "Next week's shows will include two 1-minute videos of Dartmouth each day; there will also be a phone-in competition to win a 3 night spa package including dinner and two treatments at the Dart Marina Spa for the lucky winner".  See more details of what the Hotel & Spa has to offer by checking their web site by clicking here.

2.   Man On Wire

Dartmouth Film Society's film for Thursday 19th February is Man On Wire, winner of the 'Outstanding British Film' at the 2009 BAFTA awards.  "Here was an extraordinary individual who viewed the world in a unique way. Not least from places that no other man has ever seen."

So says Man on Wire’s director James Marsh of the remarkable Philippe Petit, pickpocket, magician and wire walker, a modern day hero whose story provides the backdrop for one of the most compelling documentaries ever made.
As a teenager in Paris, Petit dreamt of achieving the seemingly unachievable - of breaking into the World Trade Centre, rigging a wire between the Twin Towers and then dancing upon it with nothing separating him and oblivion on the New York pavement 1,350 feet below. What this film evokes is a golden era before the safety-first mindset invaded our culture, wrapped our world in cotton wool and made cowards of us all. 


 

Man On Wire is a superbly made documentary that is powerful, moving, frequently funny and above all, genuinely uplifting. Indeed, by the time it reaches its climax, you'll want to stand up and applaud.  Highly recommended.

Guest tickets available from The Windjammer 7.30 - 7.55 £3.50
Bar at The Guildhall opens at 7.30 - the film to be shown  8pm

3.   Bollinger at 7 



Chris Jones reports:  Some photos from the Bollinger Dinner recently held in Wildfire Bistro at the Dart Marina.
It was a wonderful evening. Excellent food, great company and fantastic bubbles. Forty local people braved the weather to come out and be entertained by Christian Denis who is an ambassador from Bollinger. Four courses were served with some amazing champagnes from the house of Bollinger. Many left at the end of the night knowing a lot more about champagne than they did when they arrived, especially the fact that the old fashioned champagne saucer was actually modelled on one of the breasts of Marie Antoinette. Nice! I haven't been able to get that image out of my head since last night.
