The Duchess on the Estate

Two-part documentary following Sarah Ferguson, the Duchess of York, as she goes to live on a council estate in Manchester.

Having spent much of the last decade in the States, Ferguson was shocked to return to the UK to find a place she didn't recognise with a lack of community spirit.

After her last television outing to Hull, the Duchess realised just how wide-ranging the problems across 'broken Britain' are. So she is spending a week living in part of the sprawling Wythenshawe estate to gain firsthand experience of the problems of drugs, crime and a breakdown in community spirit. Can the Duchess help the mums on the estate improve life there - for good?
