Meeting the Tamar Valley artists


The stunning scenery in the Tamar Valley has inspired a rich history of art over the years.

When JMW Turner visited the area at the start of the 19th century he wrote that he had never seen so many natural beauties in such a limited spot.

It is a beauty which continues to inspire a whole host of artists to this day and BBC Spotlight's Rebecca Wills has been to meet some of those for whom the valley still sparks their creative instincts.

In her film she meets artists Ian Heard, Teresa Pemberton and Melanie Guy.
