FROM THE HORSE'S MOUTH: SILKS & AFTER GOD, RACING (Volume 3)
But behind the rustle of the jockeys' silks, the purples and reds, greens, oranges and blues, lies a life of starvation and broken bones, of discipline and privation that is translated on the racecourse into pure adrenalin.
You'll enter, too, the world of the bookie and the tic-tac man. A place of tips and intrigues, lies and scams, where everyone's trying to pull a stroke, away from the watchful eyes of the stewards.
You'll cheer on your horse from the top of the stands. Celebrate with champagne or drown your sorrows in a pint of Guinness. You'll share the intense emotions, the joy and the pain, the disappointments and the sheer exhilaration of the Irish and their consuming passion - the "Sport of Kings".
Emotive archive material, unprecedented in-depth interviews and superb 16mm action photography take you right to the core of the fascinating world of horse racing. This exclusive behind-the-scenes internationally acclaimed documentary series narrated by John Hurt gives you a look into the Irish horse industry.
