Piers Morgan on... Sandbanks (2008) [PDTV]
In the first of the 'Piers Morgan on...' series' he looks at the wealth magnet that is Sandbanks. This small area on the Dorset coast that has become home to the rich & famous, with properties selling for upwards of £12 Million.
Piers Morgan presents a new three-part documentary series exploring the extraordinary phenomenon that is Sandbanks – the small peninsula jutting out from the Dorset coast that, in little more than 100 years, has been transformed from a barren sand dune housing a couple of coastguard cottages, into one of the world’s most expensive places to live.
Today, following a boom in the 1990s, Sandbanks is a developers' paradise - a playground for the rich and famous with properties on the market for up to £12 million.
Piers meets some of the residents, including Portsmouth FC manager, Harry Redknapp, £7 million Portsmouth signing Sulley Muntari, property developer Eddie Mitchell, Richard Carr, a controversial local boy-made-good who is knocking down houses to make way for blocks of flats, Tom Doyle, the estate agent who's already made a small fortune from the gold rush and - leading the campaign against redevelopment - Terry Stewart, President of the local Residents' Association.

Sandbanks in Dorset has become one of the most expensive places in the world to live, creating an increasing divide within the tiny town. Today, in the second of his three-part investigation, Piers Morgan meets the new movers and shakers in town and finds out that not everyone is welcoming the new residents, as the old guard tries valiantly to turn back the tide and put a stop to further changes.
