ARKLE PORTRAIT OF A LEGEND This is the incredible story of the greatest and most famous racehorse that has ever lived. This fascinating documentary traces Arkle's complete life story. All the key races are featured, including his memorable duels with Mill House. This is a moving tribute to a legend.

A HORSE CALLED NIJINSKY When Nijinsky swept all before him in 1969 and then through his glorious classic summer of 1970, it seemed to be jockey Lester Piggott's and trainer Vincent O'Brien's finest hour. Although it all came undone in the Prix de L'Arc de Triomphe, in a defeat which once seemed unthinkable.

STORY OF MILL REEF From Mill Reef's debut race at the Salisbury Stakes, it was clear he was an outstanding horse. Time and again he would show himself to be exceptional and many believe that he could have gone on to be the best if he had not been struck by a tragic fall during training which shattered his leg. Year of Sir Ivor Sir Ivor was another of world famous trainer Vincent O'Brien's success stories, and 1968 was his year, with a string of wins to his credit elevating him to championship status. It would have been a fascinating year whatever happened, but with what Sir Ivor and Lester Piggott achieved together made it utterly unmissable.

DANCING BRAVE Many believe the ultimate horse is the pure bred Arab, there can be no finer example of this breed than Dancing Brave, a phenomenal success in the racing world in the 1980s. The performance of this unique and brilliant horse in the 1986 Prix de L'Arc de Triomphe was a true testament to his exceptional ability.

FRANKEL Frankel's perfect record speaks for itself. From his virtuoso performance in the 2,000 Guineas to his breathtaking sequence of triumphs as a four-year-old, and including insightful interviews with the late trainer Sir Henry Cecil, this is his official story, from the inside out.

THE YEAR OF SIR IVOR The film that broke the mold. Never before had a camera got so close to great horse’s progress. It would have been fascinating whatever happened with sir Ivor and Lester Piggott achieved in that spring, summer and autumn of 1968, it is utterly unmissable.
