60 Years Of Badminton      60 Years Of Badminton
From the first black and white footage of the early events to the highlights from the BBC’s coverage of the 60th year of Badminton, this historical programme charts the visual history of the world premiere 3 Day Event.

Interviews with the Duke of Beaufort, event Director Hugh Thomas and 6 times champion Lucinda Green help tell the story of this equestrian event, rich in sporting achievement as well as tradition.

The programme concentrates on the riders who made the headlines, whether they be winners or also rans. Lucinda Green’s amazing 6 wins is given a special chapter as is The Princes Royal’s efforts on Doublet and Goodwill in the 1970’s. Ginny Leng, Ian Stark and Mark Todd get top billing in the 80’s and 90’s and Pippa Funnell in the 21st Century. Who could forget the unbearable tension in the show jumping arena as Pippa and Supreme Rock won their second title on their way to the Rolex Grand Slam.

So many great moments are captured forever in this

documentary.
