Exploring young people’s attitudes towards Cornish, giving the language a space as a living part of contemporary British culture. A soundscape of life in Cornwall surrounds the sounds of language lessons, playing and poetry in Cornish, from young children raised bilingually through to the next generation of adults rekindling their connection to this ancient language.

 

Complex emotions surrounding Cornish identity are examined, and we hear how young people today can still struggle to embrace their heritage and language.

 

Featuring music from Cornish groups Dalla and Black Eyed Nancy, and a new commission from Cornish-language poet Taran Spalding-Jenkin.
