WATCH: Border region's regiments at the Somme

All this week we'll be looking at the stories of some of the soldiers from this region who took part in the Battle of the Somme.

It was fought along a 15-mile section of the western front in Northern France, close to the town of Albert. For his first report Tim Backshall has travelled to the battlefields to find out what happened to our local regiments.

The Corn Mill at Warwick Bridge near Carlisle is one of Cumbria's historical buildings on Historic England's at risk list.

A project to restore it and create an artisan bakery received almost £1.3 million of the £2 million needed earlier this year. A church in the same village has also been added to the at risk register.

WATCH: 'The easiest form of time travel'

A collection of historic films from the Border region can now be viewed by anyone at any time, in what's being affectionately described as 'the easiest form of time travel.'

Everything from newsreels to family videos and public information films is being made available online as part of a major new project from the British Film Institute.
