Racing is really two sports, the high finance and fashion of the flat contrasting with the grit and sometimes grim realities of the jumping scene.The first half of the programme concentrates soley on flat racing and includes rare black and white footage of the memorable races, jockeys and horses from the turn of the 20th Century onwards as well as races from as far afield as Japan, Dubai and America.
Central to the second part of the programme on the history of jumps racing is the rise of the Cheltenham Festival to its unique place in today's sporting calendar and, of course, the world's most famous race, the Grand National.
