The River Exe rises at Exe Head, in Somerset and flows more or less directly due south through Devon. En route it passes through communities including Tiverton, Collumpton and Broadclyst before arriving in Exeter. In 2012, the UK experienced mass flooding and Exeter became the focus of media attention, as the River Exe burst its banks. People's homes, businesses and lives became water-damaged, and not for the first time. To a backdrop of running water and archival footage, Flood interweaves stories inspired by real-life events from 1960 and 2012. Accounts from Exeter's inhabitants are blended with an ever-changing array of characters and the research notes of an unemployed weatherman. So throw on an anorak and pull on your wellies, to experience the story of Exeter's floods like you've never heard it before.
