BESTIVAL will feature on BBC One South this Sunday, during a new series called Sea City.

The episode will follow the brave swimmers who crossed The Solent on their way to Bestival, last year.

They were taking part in Swim2Bestival, which has been running since 2007 and last year attracted 26 entries.

The intrepid revellers all got across The Solent in an hour and ten minutes.

The fastest swimmer completed the crossing in just 33 minutes.

As well as saving money from a ferry fare, the swimmers raised £17,156.40 for charity.

The BBC show will air at 4.45pm.
