Portland

About this programme

The team reports from Portland off the Dorset coast, which many viewers have asked to be featured on the show. Matt Baker explores the isle's three lighthouses, only one of which is still used for its original purpose. Of the remaining two, one is now a bird observatory and the other is the former home of birth-control pioneer Marie Stopes. Julia Bradbury visits the famous Portland Stone quarries and John Craven joins a tugboat captain out in the harbour. Elsewhere, Adam Henson finds out how to keep man's best friend in tip-top condition with advice from a dog nutritionist.
