Agility and Obedience
Introduced by Peter Purves Action links the two main events in the big ring.
Agility - the team sport where the fitness of both dog and owner are tested in a gruelling obstacle course. Obedience - the supreme example of how every dog should behave, with heelwork, retrieves, sendaways, scent discrimination and distant control - the ultimate test of the dog handler's skill.

Reflections of a River-keeper Narrated by Barry Paine
For 27 years Tom Williams has worked alongside the Hampshire Avon, a crystal-clear river flowing through some of rural England's most beautiful countryside. His observations offer rare insights into the wild creatures that live above and below the surface. Unique underwater swims reveal grayling eating caddis, minnows migrating upstream, and delicate roach feeding after the floods.
Whether he's watching trout rising, adjusting sluices or catching a magnificent salmon, Tom's work keeps the river alive, and in this affectionate portrait he 'observes things that townsfolk's eyes would never see'.
