The era of the 'new media baron' dawns at Camelot Castle, Cornwall
Camelot Castle Hotel in Tintagel, Cornwall, plays host to celebrities, business owners and media leaders; where talks are held, sometimes late into the night, to uphold the values of positive news reporting
Both men have strong links to Cornwall, and both have been pioneers of positive news reporting; pledging to use media as a tool to improve understanding, communication and peace.
Lately, John Mappin is just as well known for his remarkable restoration of Tintagel's Camelot Castle Hotel; now an international focal point for members of the celebrity and media worlds. In fact, Camelot has once again become a global round table where decisions are made.
Nicolas Cage, Kate Winslet, Buzz Aldrin, Donald Pleasence, the Emir of Quatar, key business leaders, politicians and even a Russian Oil Oligarch, have all enjoyed visits and talked into the small hours at Camelot Castle.
Williams himself recalls his first memorable visit to the hotel, some years ago, when it was being used as a movie set for a big budget adaptation of Bram Stoker's 'Dracula'.
"Some while later John Mappin and I were working together on a small newspaper," says Duncan. "Which, at the time, was one of the very few in this country to make a brave stand against the pressured political cries for an invasion of Afghanistan."
Under Tony Blair, most major newspapers and indeed old school 'press barons' toed the line and printed the lie. Now look at what has resulted!
Duncan Williams went on to form his own ethical publishing company, printing 1000s of copies of a successful self help book, then created a series of regional newspaper and magazine titles.
Mappin and Williams hold the view that society and survival are in grave danger when false reporting or incorrect data are used to justify an unsound government agenda.
Media then has a duty to report the truth. Positive reporting is ethical reporting. Transmitting a fact without recourse to negative spin.
"It is sad to read so much negativity about the work that goes on at Camelot Castle," says Duncan. "John Mappin, his wife Irina and resident artist Ted Stourton all contribute a huge amount to Cornwall. They offer their home as a base for debate about issues concerning local and national media."
And these are issues that still concern us all ...
