Six films in which
Chris Serle and Paul Heiney take it in turns to plunge in at the deep end.
One Dog and his Man The bond between a shepherd and his border collie is very close. It is based on loyalty, devotion, trust and the willingness to serve whatever the conditions. The ultimate test is at a sheepdog trial.
Up to now, Paul Heiney has never had to cope with so much as a poodle. Now he needs to achieve an almost telepathic understanding with Tim, his sheepdog, in order to compete at the Woburn Abbey trial.
Paul and Tim discover some remote and beautiful comers of the British Isles, as they seek help and advice from farmers and shepherds who are top trialists. They meet
Phil Drabble and Eric Halsall of One Man and His Dog fame at Chatsworth, learn all about 'sheep sense' at a Cumbrian 'merry meet', and struggle to master the mysteries of the Drive, the Pen and the Maltese Cross. Photography
