It’s not quite Hollywood, but near enough. In May the BBC used part of the High Street as a location (substituting for late 18th-century Truro) for its forthcomeing Poldark series (broadcasting next year), while an independent company, Hat Trick Productions, used Church Street and part of the High Street for the next in its Suspicions of Mr. Whicher series, set in the 1860s. You would not think it now, but the roads and shops were convincingly transformed for a few days each time, the Post Office and Coppins in particular taking on interesting new identities, as these pictures show.
