For readers in the ITV region, the relevant episode of Mystery Map can be seen on ITV Player until around Dec 27th; the Devil's Footprints section is in the third segment.
There are - after a couple of months of production (and at the time of writing on11th November) - twenty four clips on view, and eleven are about Topsham. These are: three Blue Peter films shot in 1979 (the mud football), 1984 (about flooding) and early 1990s (John Leslie and the pump running competition on the quay), salmon fishing with two of Topsham’s remaining salmon boats, two with Graham Rich talking about his work as an artist (he is represented by the Fine Arts Society), Show of Hands performing at the Rugby Club during their tour of Topsham in 2010, the Puertas String Quartet practising in St Margaret’s Church prior to a performance, the last week (and sale) at Underhills shoe shop, the recent Devon Air Ambulance celebration at Darts Farm with Steve Knightley of Show Of Hands reminiscing about the town when he was an ‘Exmouth boy’, and a clip shot by me from the cockpit of a RN Sea Harrier flying low and fast over the town.
