A Home of Our Own

BBC Radio 4 programme in which Lynsey Hanley explores Britain's broken housing market through the stories of ten very different homes and their occupants.
This episode tells the story of Hillside Cottage in St Mawes, Cornwall, owned by 79-year-old Phil Salter. Phil bought this 17th-century fisherman's cottage in 1989 after selling his ex-council house. Hillside is now worth over a million pounds.
Author and journalist Lynsey Hanley explores what Hillside Cottage tells us about the impact of council house sales and second homes in areas like Cornwall.
House historian Melanie Backe-Hansen also researches the history of Hillside Cottage, which started out a storehouse for fish.
Throughout the series, Paul Cheshire, emeritus professor of economic geography at the London School of Economics will put each home in context. Professor Cheshire is a member of the Centre for Economic Performance at LSE.
