[edit] Information

Until his death, playwright, beachcomber and lobsterman Nick Darke lived on Cornwall's north coast. He came from a long line of seafarers and practised the right of 'wrecking', an ancient pastime that put him in touch, through phone calls and the internet, with fishermen and oceanographers round the world. This film, photographed by his wife Jane, captures a unique portrait of his daily work as he combed the wild seashore for hardwoods, sea beans, fishing paraphernalia and fascinating artefacts.
