Sandbanks TV programme

A three part series over three nights on ITV is devoted to Sandbanks at the western end of the Bournemouth Coast Path.

The sandy peninsula lies within the borough of Poole with just one road entry although some motorists arrive by ferry by way of the Isle of Purbeck. Many people pass through on the 150 Bournemouth-Swanage open top bus which takes precedence over all other traffic queuing for the ferry including large cars from the exclusive houses.

The houses and plots are amongst the most expensive in Europe with such residents as Harry Redknapp and his daughter Louise. Sir Ernest Cassel was one of the first to have beach house there but he did not think it worth buying the land. He may have been right since there are now fears about rising sea levels.

Piers Morgan fronts the programme made last year and talks to residents and an estate agent. 

See pages 20-23.

Sandbanks is on ITV at 10.35 on Tuesday 15, Wednesday 16 and Thursday 17 January.
