Lydia - Great White Shark

11th March 2014

Where is Lydia?

Lydia - great white shark trackScientists have been tracking Lydia, a Great White Shark and she is currently closer to Cornwall than the United States.  The current therory is she may be pregnant and looking for a nursing station.

Why are we all so scared?

On this morning's show, Neil and tina reveleaed their fears, sparked from the Jaws film they saw as kids.  

Heather from Berealston revealed that she had once been bitten by a shark - but it had been her fault for leaving her foot dangling in the water of feeding nurse sharks - only a bruised foot to complain about!

And Dr David Gibson, the Managing Director of the National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth, explained about pregnant sharks and invited Neil to face his fears by getting up close and personal with sharks.


What an invitation - surely one we cannot refuse!

Apprentice Week 2014

Tina thought she'd try her hand at Engineering and thanks to Cornwall College, visited Arcol, where apprentices Tristan and Rob showed her how to use a lathe for the resister components they make.


Neil, jokingly said he'd like to be a hairdresser, so we went to Inkfish in Truro where apprentices Kate, Jade and Michael took us through the science of hair colouring and Neil got his hands wet, learning how to shampoo!
