DetailsIn this two part TV series, now available on DVD, much loved, comic actor Martin Clunes explores his personal fascination with horses in an appealing, light-hearted study of the noble beast. He travels around the world to trace the origins and evolution of the horse and to explore man’s relationship and reliance upon them.
From remotest Mongolia to the deserts of Arabia. From the Mustangs of Nevada to the Windsor Greys of Buckingham Palace. From chariots to cowboys, armoured knights to mounted police to horse whisperers.
A skilful rider and owner of several horses himself, Martin will be jumping into the saddle at every opportunity, bringing the story to life with his trademark gentle humour.
In Programme 1: The Animal
Martin Clunes explores why the horse evolved to be the way it is, and why it was possible to connect with it and turn it to our advantage.
In Programme 2: The Servant and The Symbol
He explores how horses changed our world and the jobs they did for us and still do.
