Lord George Sanger
When Lord George Sanger 's circus left its winter quarters in an old mill near Ashford, Kent, in March, its 142nd season had begun. And in the ring, for the first time, is Michael Freeman , who is the great-great-great-grandson of the founder of the circus, Lord George.
Philip Holland talks to members of the Sanger family, the Robertis who have been clowns for generations, a young Welsh trapeze artist, an ex-army major, and the present * Lord George' Sanger, and their plans and reminiscences make up a circus portrait.
Compiled, edited, and narrated
