Food TV: Betjeman & Me - Rick Stein's Story

Food TV Special: Betjeman & Me – Rick Stein’s Story
Food TV – Sunday 29 April, 8.30pm

Rick Stein celebrates Sir John Betjeman’s long love affair with the English seaside holiday and his deep affection for Cornwall, in the South West of England. The much-loved poet was actually born in the suburbs of London, but as his beautiful poetry reveals, his heart belonged on the Cornish coast. Using archive footage, beautiful aerial photography, together with close friends (some who even feature in his verse) and their unique memories of his eccentricities, Rick will discover why Betjeman chose to live out his days on the Cornish coast. The documentary culminates in a superb seafood extravaganza in honour of the great man – the ultimate fish pie.
