A COUNCIL educational film which stars celebrity chef Michael Caines and presenters from Exmouth Community College will be given its premier screening tomorrow.

Called Think Deep, The East Devon District council learning resource will be launched at the college's Gypsy Lane campus.

The underwater film is a collaborative project involving the school, Natural England and was made by media production company Pangaea TV.

The work looks to teach principles of consumption and sustainability to be taught at Key Stage three level of geography science and citizenship.

Tony Alexander, Exmouth Community College principal, said he was glad to help with the project after some of his students appeared in the film.

"The College was keen to support this initiative," he said.

"Working with the district council on the successful Food 4 Thought project was of huge benefit to the students and following this documentary with a look at the seafood industry seemed an obvious continuation of this.

"The council is a college partner and projects such as this give our students invaluable experience of work in a professional and very exciting sphere."

Speaking about what motivated him to appear in the film, Michael Caines said he was keen to support projects that encourage young people to take an interest in food and sustainability.

The double Michelin award-winner said: "The South West has some of the best seafood in Europe and I am keen to support projects which encourage people to take a more active interest in local food and sustainability."

Graham Liverton, East Devon District Council chair, said: "East Devon has a fishing heritage to be proud of.

"This film will bring this heritage into classrooms throughout the region.

"We all realise the need to provide food, including seafood, sustainably and it is fantastic to be able to showcase local examples of how this is currently being achieved to students throughout the South West.
