Martin Clunes: A Man And His Dogs

LIVING CHANNEL – Tuesdays from 3 November, 8.30pm

Martin Clunes takes a wry and witty look at why we are prepared to take the risk of sharing our homes with dogs who are genetically still 99.8 per cent like wolves. This epic, dramatic and sometimes surreal journey takes Martin to Africa, Australia and America to find the surviving wild ancestors of pampered pets like his own beloved dogs, Mary, Tina and Arthur. He trails the dog’s ancient canine cousin, the endangered African Painted Dog in Tanzania, watches wild dingoes frolicking in the surf on Fraser Island, and observes wolves gorging on a kill in a winter-gripped Yellowstone.
