Abstract / Summary

From the Culch is assembled from the bin cuts of a lost 1978 BBC documentary about the Fal River oyster fishery. After the documentary was broadcast a can of randomly assembled 16mm film was given to Dennis Laity, crewman on the working boat George Glasson, as a memory of his brother who passed away just after shooting wrapped.

The can of film lay in Dennis’s airing cupboard for 45 years, unseen, before being passed to the director. A 4K digital scan revealed the beauty captured in the celluloid and Dennis, now 82 years old, gave voice to his memories of the men who dredged the Carrick Roads and the boats they sailed on.
