Sex and City star visits Dorset
Sex and the City star Kim Cattrall has paid a visit to a Dorset landmark as part of her latest television project.

The actress, who played Samantha in the sitcom, was filming by the Cerne Giant, near Cerne Abbas, for the new documentary series Sexual Intelligence.

The giant, a chalk figure cut into the hillside above the village, is believed to be an ancient fertility symbol.

Filming for the series has now been completed. The filming rights will help pay for conservation work at the site.

Harvey Edgington, from the National Trust, owners of the Cerne Giant, said: "We are delighted that Kim Cattrall has been filming at one of our East Dorset properties.

"As a charity, the National Trust uses the granting of filming rights at its properties as a way of raising funds for its vital conservation work.

"Requests for filming access are always carefully considered and only permitted where there is no threat to the fabric of the property. "
