Documentary following on from a six-part series made three years ago about life in London SE1, the inner-city neighbourhood south of the Thames. At that time the area was undergoing extensive regeneration that included the opening of the Tate Modern, the Globe theatre and wine museum Vinopolis. This programme sets out to discover how much has changed since 1999 - focusing in particular on the development of Borough Market, the opening of the Millennium bridge and the boom in the property market.
And here's what mydigiguide says about the show...
Documentary series following the rapidly changing face of London SE1 - just south of the Thames. With the threat from railway development abated, Borough Market is now thriving again, and Mayor Ken Livingstone and the GLA are about to move into the area. But for locals on the receiving end of three years of regeneration, many of the old issues remain

When: Sunday 17th November on ITV1 London
Documentary series following the rapidly changing face of London SE1 - just south of the Thames. At Fortes Gents Hairdressers, Dasos is not impressed by his dad's choice of hair products which he thinks old fashioned. And community officer PC Keenan warns off illegal traders from around the Tate Modern
This week Ptolemy Dean (I think that was his name) was shown in one scene complaining about scruffy bins, street furniture and patched roads, and then shown in another scene saying he moved here a year ago from Pimlico because he liked it being a bit more gritty, edgy etc and not villagey. Was this cruel editing? Is he a bit confused?
Just for your info everyone, the guys are still filming for the series so if there any issues you think should be raised by the programme (remembering that it is a television programme and they are looking to include things that will attract viewers), perhaps contacting the film company (The Lab) would be a wise move. They're in SE1 and they are still looking for stories so if you've got something genuinely interesting, give 'em a go!
Regarding Stirling Ackroyd getting good press, I still have 6 weeks to make a total idiot of myself so keep watching...
I have just looked up the details for the 24 November programme, which is back at the usual 5pm time:
