THE weird and wonderful lives of Exmoor folk are the subject of a talk and presentation by an ex-BBC journalist.
Notes From An Exmoor Diary, originally a six-part radio series, tells the true stories of a selection of moor dwellers through the eyes of John Burgess, a Somerset local who spent 30 years as both a journalist and producer for the BBC.
Central are a prolific horse-shodding blacksmith from Porlock, a "lovable rascal" caretaker and a hunting, shooting lady of the moor who found comfort in a caravan. All brought to life with Burgess's storytelling and recorded sound extracts.
John Burgess: Notes From An Exmoor Diary is at St James' Church, Swimbridge on Wednesday, October 23, 7pm. Entry: £3, free for Friends of St James.
