Britain's Secrets with Anne Robinson

Episode 2: Pet Secrets

Duration: 58 minutes

First broadcast: on BBC One WalesLatest broadcast: on BBC One Wales

Anne Robinson presents a four-part series delving into different areas of contemporary British life. Anne is a dog lover and has never been without one in her life. In this episode, she meets like-minded people from all walks of life with strong views about their pets, from a horsey socialite to a homeless dog owner, and asks this nation of animal obsessives: 'what's the point of your pet?'

Her journey takes her behind the curtains of British homes and reveals just how eccentric we are when it comes to our pets. From the Magnificats, seven London cats with 1.4 million Facebook fans, to the lady whose rabbits helped her through her divorce, Anne examines whether a pet can ever be more than a pet and looks at what our love of our four-legged friends says about us.

She also gives two very different dog lovers the chance to experience each other's relationships with their pets. Richard's highly regimented pack of gun dogs are the epitome of good behaviour, while Ewa believes in pampering her fur babies. What will they make of each other and their pets, and whose approach is best? Show less
