Q. Last week I went on a geography trip to Studland Bay where the music video for Yellow was filmed - why was this beach, of all beaches chosen?


The Oracle replies:

James Frost (one half of the video's directing team) said it was their producer who suggested it.
As is usual with videos, several locations are given as options before a scout of those places are carried out. Studland Bay was actually the first they visited and as soon as they saw it they knew immediately it was the right place to film.
