The story of a very special sort of madness, what it is to ride in the Grand National at Aintree.
To many, this chaotic cavalry charge seems an extraordinary, sometimes brutal, absurdity. But if you are in it, it's the ultimate, danger-riddled reality.
Ever since I was a boy I'd dreamed of riding in the Grand National, never mind winning it -
Richard Dunwoody won the National on the favourite West Tip in 1986. Now he dreams of doing it again ... Narrated by Enn Reitel Written by BROUGH SCOTT Music by PHILIP DONNELLY Produced and directed by ULTAN GUILFOYLE
