The Cornish Banner / An Baner Kernewek is Cornwall's foremost cultural magazine. Now in its 42nd year and having reached No. 168 it is the land's longest running serious quarterly. As well as providing up-to-date commentary on the current world scene the magazine deals with contemporary events in Cornwall and has articles on its history, culture and the arts by leading writers. An interesting feature looks at the history of islands and regions in other parts, putting the Cornish experience in perspective. Having completed in past issues a series on Cornish personalities through the centuries, the editor now has articles on Cornish rural society from 1600 to modern times, taking as an example his own parish of St. Goran in south Cornwall. Dygemysker's "Cornish Notes", consisting of extracts from the previous three months issues of the daily Western Morning News, provide local readers and those overseas with an invaluable record of their native land. "Cornish Gleanings" by Tom Tucker, contributions by talented poets, book reviews and shorter pieces complete the pages of Cornwall's most distinguished journal which is well supported by local advertisers.
