BBC Series The River to feature chocolatier Ruth Hinks

UK World Chocolate Master Ruth Hinks (pictured) and the team at chocolate boutique and school Cocoa Black in Peebles are to feature in a forthcoming BBC series.

The River will follow the lives of those who live and work along the Tweed Valley in the Scottish Borders.

The BBC crew filmed behind the scenes at Cocoa Black between April and August this year, following Hinks as she tackled the challenges of growing an international chocolate business with family life.

During the show, Hinks was filmed alongside Prince Edward who visited for the opening of the new Chocolate and Pastry School. Other Cocoa Black regulars who may make an appearance on the programme are Martin Chiffers (UK Pastry Team president), Graham Hornigold (executive pastry chef, Hakkasan) and Paul Kelly (judge, Great Irish Bake Off).

Episode 1 of The River is scheduled for broadcast on 7 November.
