The two European Champions and their horses.
This year's equestrian events have been dominated by two people, Lucinda Prior-Palmer and Alwin Schockemohle
Both European Championships were staged in Germany and at Luhmuhlen LUCINDA PRIOR-PALMER, the vivacious young rider from Hampshire, riding Be Fair, showed no fear in tackling the enormous fences to win emphatically, With HRH THE PRINCESS ANNE as runner-up. ALWIN SCHOCKE-MÖHLE, supreme horseman and business tycoon, won the two major prizes that have eluded him so far, the' European Championship and the King George V Gold Cup.
Although these two riders are at the top of their sports, their training facilities and backgrounds are amazingly different. Raymond Brooks-Ward went to their respective homes and discussed the year's equestrian events, the Amateur-Professional controversy, next year's Olympics and, inevitably, horses.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.

50s, you can navigate by issue.
