1. BRNC Big Band :
The Flavel will be swinging to the
sounds of the BRNC Big Band tonight.
Last heard in Dartmouth back in November at the brilliant
‘Strictly’ evening, the Big Band’s programme for their
fund-raising concert at the Flavel will include popular Glen
Miller classics as well as more contemporary numbers by the
likes of Michael Bublé. The vocalists for the evening will be
the excellent Mick Jones and Caroline Barton.
The Big Band is made up of members of the multi award-winning
BRNC Royal Navy Volunteer Band, under the direction of Phil
Watson. This is the band’s third concert in support of the
Flavel, in what has become a February hardy-annual. All proceeds
will go to the Flavel Arts Centre.
The concert begins at 7.30pm and tickets are £8 and £5 (under
18). A Pre-Show Supper can also be enjoyed in the Flavel Arts
Café - 2 courses for £12, (£8 for under- 18s). Advanced booking
is essential. For supper bookings and tickets call the Box
Office on 01803 839530. Tickets are also available online by

The aim of the Dartmouth dot TV
crew is to market Dartmouth as a sustainable quality tourist
destination and to "Keep Dartmouth Special". We are successful
in doing this on quite a modest budget, and sometimes out of
our own pockets.
About 15 years ago it was
sufficient to send holidaymakers a small and mostly colour
brochure, but then the internet came along and a web
site was de-rigueur. But now some say that websites
are passé and Facebook is everything. Not quite, but
it's certainly looking that way. Obviously we have our
own highly successful website crammed with photographs, news
and where to stay, eat and play,
click here to see it.
But what about Facebook ?
Dartmouth dot TV runs the largest Dartmouth Facebook page by
quite a large margin. Facebook co-operates with us and
helps promote our page. This week we ran a feature
entitled "Lazy Sunday Afternoon : An hour ago in Dartmouth"
that achieved over 15 thousand views and is increasing right
now! Before that we did a feature on the new Dartmouth
In Bloom ( DiB ) and had even more views at 21 thousand.
But the stunner is the article
we published on Dartmouth earlier this month called " Spring
is in the air ! Lunchtime in Dartmouth today" where we got a
certified 57,806 views, yes nearly sixty thousand !
You can see it by
So many views and such high
visibility will drive holidaymakers to Dartmouth without a
doubt. If you are a Dartmouth Business you really
ought to advertise with us, or at least sponsor us with a
small financial donation please?

Untouchable (Intouchables) : Tonight !
Directors: Oliver Nakache, Eric
Toledano : Actors: François Cluzet, Omar Sy : 112 minutes :
Cert. 15. Biography/Comedy/Drama
‘An irreverent, uplifting comedy
about friendship, trust and human possibility, Untouchable
has broken box office records across Europe, and is to be
France's entry for the best foreign language film Oscar in
2013.’ It's a polished account of the odd-couple friendship
between Philippe (François Cluzet), a rich, handsome,
cultivated quadriplegic, and his new carer, Driss (Omar Sy),
an intelligent, charismatic, uneducated young working-class
West African who has done time for robbery. Philippe loves
Bach and Schubert, nights at the opera and extreme sports….
Driss is more of an Earth, Wind and Fire man. What draws
them together is their total honesty, (Driss never sees
Philippe as an object of pity), sense of humour, shared
appetite for life and contempt for stuffy bourgeois
hypocrisy and the general gaucheness of nearly everyone
around them. They are mischievous, incorrigible…… and
