What People Have Said About 'Town With Nicholas Crane (BBC Two)':
"We were filming local artist Claire Falconer and she was telling us why she’d decided to leave California and return to Enniskillen. I could see through the studio window the green tossing trees of the town, the surging river and cavorting clouds, and I was reminded how towns are small enough to stay in touch with their natural surroundings, and that it’s preserving contact with the countryside that helps to bring so much vitality to urban streets."
"Claire Falconer talks of how she left Enniskillen for Hollywood to pursue a career in acting and producing. Having recently returned to her hometown, she finds many people are now re-engaging with their roots. Claire tells Nick what it is about the town that pulled her back and the inspirations behind her work."
