Beryl Cook

Britain has lost one of its best-loved artists, the painter Beryl Cook, who has died at her home in Plymouth at the age of 81. She had been suffering from cancer for some time but, typically reticent, had kept it all but a secret.

One of TSW's first award-winning documentaries, focusing on saucy Plymouth artist Beryl Cook. A Day In The Life Of...was an offshoot of TSW's documentary strand, Scene South West. The programme was repeated on TSW's last day.
