  • BBC South 50 years: Episode 4 Aldaniti

    🎬BBC South 50 years: Episode 4 Aldaniti. A series of 19 mini-features made by BBC South at Southampton in 2011 to celebrate the station's 50 year history.

    Episode 4 Aldaniti. Nobody expected Aldaniti to win the 1981 Grand National. The horse had suffered leg injuries and jockey Bob Champion was recovering from cancer. But win they did and their story inspired a feature film, Champions. Thirty years later Roger Johnson accompanied Bob Champion on a nostalgic visit to trainer Josh Gifford's stables in Findon.
