Cornwall: This Fishing Life - meet the programme's OU academic advisers

Follow the fortunes of young Cornish fishermen, fighting to secure a future for their traditional way of life

Fishermen have fed our nation and sustained our coastal communities for generations. However, there's a danger of fishermen disappearing, as owners sell their boats and their children move away to look for work. 

Cornwall: This Fishing Life will be broadcast on Tuesdays at 8pm on BBC Two from 7 January 2020. To find out more, visit the BBC programme page.

The Open University's Dr Vicky Johnson, Professor David Humphreys and Dr Shonil Bhagwat form the academic team supporting the series and have been chosen for their ability to advise on the programme’s subject area.
