World premiere on a Keswick stage

Film stars including Kelly MacDonald and Jessica Hynes were in the Lake District last night for the world premiere of Swallows and Amazons.

They were back on the shores of Derwent water in Keswick, where some of the movie was filmed.

It's based on Arthur Ransome's book which tells the tale of four children who camp on an island in the middle of a Lake.

A Border Television TV Guide from 1961 is to be auctioned in Carlisle today.

The small piece of Border TV history was found in a house clearance where it had been hidden in a box for more than 50 years.

The September 1st edition transports us back to a time a few years before colour TV would have been in many homes.

It features programmes including Wrestling with Big Daddy, Western TV series Cheyanne, The Avengers and of course Coronation Street.

Experts say they have no idea how much the guide, which will be auctioned at H&H Auction Room, will be sold for.

This is a fantastic step back in time, and a great reminder of the of the TV programmes, which were popular over 50 years ago, most of which are well remembered and some of which are still with us today.

This quite literally is a magazine, which is synonymous with the 1960s, and I know it will bring back some very fond reminders and happy memories for many people.

They're also asking them to make sure they don't trespass on private property.

The group represents thousands of farmers, landowners and businesses in the north of England, and they've issued the following top tips:

  • Be aware of your surroundings at all times
  • Stick to designated public rights of way as marked on the map or sign posts
  • Keep dogs on a lead around farm animals and horses but let the lead go if they give chase
  • Leave gates and property as you find them
  • Follow the Countryside Code
