with Phil Drabble
A series of five programmes 4: Running Dogs
PHIL DRABBLE goes to the dogs. tie looks behind the scenes of greyhound racing at Birmingham s Perry Barr Stadium , where he discovers that a top greyhound can cost as much as £10,000 and that the margin between winning and losing is counted in hundredths of a second.
Away from fancy prices and big betting, at a social club in the heart of the Black Country, Phil also rediscovers a world more reminiscent of his younger days-when whippet racing attracted a whole breed of men and dogs, whose hobby became a way of life.
