Event description

Description

A journey across the imaginative geographies of North Cornwall. Using sound, visuals and spoken word, Headlands tells the story of a weird visitation and an even weirder TV show. A spoken word performance by James Riley and Yvonne Salmon.

In 1981 the Cornish village of Port Isaac was used by the BBC as the primary location for their shot-on-video serial The Nightmare Man. Based on David Wiltshire’s novel Child of the Vodyanoi (1978) and produced by the creative team behind Dr. Who, The Nightmare Man was a story of UFOs and experimental flight technology. It combined cold-war paranoia and pulp science fiction with European folklore and haunting shots of the English coastline.
