Updated 4:28pm Friday 7th March 2014 in By Bruce Unwin, Chief Reporter (Durham)
A TRUE story of a capsized fishing boat, a lone crew member’s heroic survival and the effect on villagers at its home port is the next screening of a Durham film club.
The 2012 Icelandic tragedy The Deep will be shown at Clayport Library, in Millennium Place, Durham, on Thursday, March 20, at 7.30pm.
Clayport Film Club’s programme of fortnightly screenings features rarely seen, non-commercial titles, many of them sub-titled foreign language productions.
There is a £5 annual membership, followed by a £4 charge, or £3 for concessions, per film thereafter.
SALE DAY: A weekly car boot sale takes place on Littleburn Industrial Estate, at Langley Moor, near Durham, tomorrow (Sunday, March 9).
Don’t Bin it, Sell It is staged each Sunday at Mill House, on the estate, at 12.30pm, with sellers asked to arrive from 11am.
The charge is £12 for seller vans, £10 for cars and £3 for trailers. Further details are available on 01207-292198.

Tuesday’s (March 11) trek, Durham by Telephoto, is less than two-miles long, starting at the North Door, at Durham Cathedral, at 10am.
It is expected to take about two hours to complete, with a £4 charge per walker.
