Horsepower With Martin Clunes

LIVING CHANNEL – Sunday 13 & 20 January, 8.30pm

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 and mounted police to horse whisperers, actor and horse lover Martin Clunes travels the world to unlock the secrets of a partnership which has shaped the world. Not so long ago, every culture on earth seemed to be dependent on equine power, for warfare, ceremony, farming, transport, sport and pleasure. Today, the horse still maintains an important role in society. On this journey, Martin unravels the true story of how man and horse first got together, what the horse has done for civilisation through the ages, and what the horse still means to us today.
