• Brixham - one of England's oldest and greatest fishing ports - is explored in-depth in a new 10-part observational documentary produced by Mentorn Media for Sky Atlantic HD. The second episode of which airs tonight, 29th July 2011, at 20:00.

    With unique access to the town, each 60-minute instalment provides an eye-opening insight into the fishing community from the point of view of the great characters who live and work there. Episode Two focuses on April, when Brixham draws on Devon's colourful past of smuggling and piracy. Thanks to the efforts of its Brixham Buccaneers the town plays host to an annual Pirate Festival. They run their operations from a replica of the Golden Hind moored in Brixham harbour.

    Marketing consultant Nigel James is determined to bring a large number of tourists into the town by creating a new record - a mile long line of people dressed as pirates. It's a bold plan.

    Fisherman Nathan Ould is in search of Brixham's bounty - 'Black Gold'. It's the local name for cuttlefish, which this time of year shoals inshore to breed. Nathan will rely on Barry Young and Brixham's fish market auctioneers to get him the best price. It's an important bounty for Brixham, bringing in 2 million pounds a year through the market.

    Landlady of the Maritime Inn - Pat Seddon - revels in the history of her Inn, ancient haunt of smugglers, freebooters and cut throats. On its walls hang handbills and customs letters detailing the exploits of the smugglers who developed their ancient trade in Fish Town.
