PlanetPotato Number 6: Lights! Camera! Action! Making movies and metaphorically meeting Mr Potato Head
PlanetPotato is back after its summer break and it's time to go to the movies!

Plus the winner of the (International) Potato Photographer of the Year competition, details of a potato-print auction for charity and, of course, a soothing recitation of potato-variety names...
