Last year more than 75,000 people went to the City of Birmingham Show, which is held annually in Handsworth Park. Here the country is brought to the city -flowers, rabbits, bees and honey and champion dogs are all part of the scene. But tonight and tomorrow television concentrates on some of Britain's leading showjumpers.
