OVER the next four days and nights on Channel 4 and More4, Sophie Morgan, Clare Balding and Radzi Chinyanganya (pictured) present live coverage from the 119th edition of the world’s greatest dog show at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham. It promises to be an extraspecial event this year as the Kennel Club is celebrating its 150th anniversary, and things get off to an energetic start with the Flyball heats. The first group to be judged will be the gundogs tonight, with coverage on More4, then
Channel 4, with the winner going through to Sunday’s prestigious Best In Show final. Also tonight are the Agility finals for intermediate and large dogs, with commentary from Jim Rosenthal and Graham Partridge. The coverage on More4 will also include advice from vet Dr Paul Manktelow, and a daily feature on UK breeds presented by Frank Kane — this evening, the veteran dog show judge focuses on the Dandie Dinmont terrier (pictured), and tomorrow he turns his attention to the Welsh corgi.
