A film by Nick & Jane Darke
The north coast of Cornwall is one of the best collection points in the world for long-haul drift. When a southwest gale blows for three days, artefacts and natural objects from across the world - from Labrador down to the Amazon Basin - wash up on these shores.

Playwright Nick Darke comes from generations of beachcombers, or wreckers. He traces everything he finds along the coastline back to its source, via the telephone and the internet.

Over many years, he has built up a unique picture of coastal communities around the Atlantic, making friends with fishermen, scientists, oceanographers and fellow beachcombers along the way.

This film follows Nick onto the beach during one stormy winter and records all his discoveries.
