BBC News reports that the 131m-long Karin Schepers was beached near St Just early this morning.
Rescue teams were alerted to assist, but the 12-strong crew had managed to free the vessel from the sand by the time help arrived.
According to Steve Huxley of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA), the ship was "extremely lucky" to get off the sand so quickly.
The cause of the incident is not yet known.
The documentary also reveals the case of a 62-year-old retired taxi driver from Birmingham caught with 5kg of cocaine concealed behind the engine of his car.
