One Man and His Dog

on BBC Two England

A series of eight programmes 1: In Search of a Champion
Last autumn 12 top shepherds and sheepdogs from all parts of the British Isles met at Buttermere in the Lake District for a series of television sheepdog trials. During the next seven weeks they will be seen competing in teams representing England East, England West, Scotland and Wales.
Phil Drabble (pictured) looks behind the trial course at the sheepdogs on the farm, the unique role they play, and their life-from puppies, through patient training, to working sheep on the lowlands and fells of the British countryside.
Next week all the skill and wisdom of man and dog will be put to the test as the first team, England West, competes on the trial course.
...a lucid, tranquil introduction to the trials to be shown in subsequent editions .. : (DAILY TELEGRAPH) ... simple, rewarding viewing the very best of television ...
