Latest news: Tidelines

What do we want and need to know about our Exe estuary and coast (past, present, future)? How can we celebrate and learn more together about our unique location? How can we be active in responding in our communities and as individuals to ongoing changes to our environment and climate? This is a different sort of project. It brings together knowledge about science, arts, craft, history, place and nature and makes vibrant connections between these different ways of experiencing and understanding the world. the Tidelines website is at https://tidelines.uk/

A highly recommended book is The Sea Around Us by Rachel Carson. For details see https://tidelines.uk/blog/the-sea-around-us-rachel-carson/

Guide to arts programmes and performances on TV

Why not scan the TV programmes schedule to see what performances and arts programmes are on the main TV Channels (also available online on catch-up TV, usually for a month, so no need to watch live). Details of these programmes are on EPG (Electronic Programme Guide) on your TV, or on the websites or apps of the broadcasters (e.g. https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer), or in listings magazines such as the Radio Times (https://www.radiotimes.com/tv/tv-listings/).

Plus, of course, there are hundreds of films on many TV channels!

Arts online

If there is nothing on live right now, you can always take a look at the BBC Arts website for some inspiration (and scroll down to the bottom of its webpage for yet more links) - https://www.bbc.co.uk/arts. This has now been called "Culture in Quarantine". To listen to or watch something on the BBC, go to https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds or https://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer (or the BBC Sounds or BBC iPlayer app on your tablet or phone) and type "Arts" in the search engine box.

Or try The Guardian's Arts section - https://www.theguardian.com/theguardian/g2/arts (or on The Guardian app on your tablet or phone).
