Nobody expected Aldaniti to win the 1981 Grand National. The horse had suffered leg injuries and jockey Bob Champion was recovering from cancer.

Thirty years later Roger Johnson accompanied Bob Champion on a nostalgic visit to trainer Josh Gifford's stables in Findon.NFG are indebted to the BBC staff at Southampton for their help in sourcing items for the archive.
