Imagine that the beautiful stretch of foreshore that you had maintained and developed was actually a public reserve that you had appropriated for your own use. This is what happened with the Hermitage Foreshore Reserve in Woollahra; a situation that was exposed by activist and conservationist Peter Beggs in 1980. This clip from the ABC current affairs program 'Nationwide' investigates the lack of public access to Sydney's harbourside reserves. It focuses on the role of activists in working with community and government bodies to restore to the public what rightfully belongs to them.
