Crufts Returns To More4

The nation’s favourite dog event Crufts is to return to More4 in March, with Clare Balding at the helm. The channel, which has broadcast from Crufts for the past two years, will be covering the event for two hours each night, from 7-9pm on the 8th to 11th March.

Editor for Channel 4 Documentaries Anna Miralis says: “Crufts is an extremely popular event, with a loyal audience that looks forward to coverage on More4. We intend to deliver the same fresh and exciting format that celebrates Britain’s love affair with its favourite pet, the dog, that has proved such a hit for viewers. We will continue to explore the issues surrounding dog welfare and to promote an understanding of how to improve the health and lives of all dogs.”

Clare Balding, who will be presenting the show, says: “I look forward to Crufts every year, an event which holds a special place in the nation’s heart. The combination of insightful interviews, live programming and the huge variety of dog competitions and issues that are featured make it must-see television, as the viewing figures prove year on year.”

Caroline Kisko, Secretary of the Kennel Club, which organises the event says, “Crufts is a key event in any dog lovers’ calendar and More4’s coverage always captures the heart of the event, which is a celebration of the special relationship between man and his dog. The programme will feature everything that makes Crufts such a great event, including the hero dogs competition, Friends for Life, dog agility, and of course Best in Show. More4’s coverage also raises important issues surrounding breeding, buying, training and caring for dogs that help dogs to lead healthy, happy lives.”

More4’s Crufts coverage will be produced by Sunset + Vine.

Watch live on Youtube.

The Kennel Club, organiser of Crufts is also working with Sunset + Vine and YouTube to ensure that there is live streaming of the event  from the moment that show opens to the time it closes on the internet.

The free to view live coverage will include all of the action from the Arena, which will include Best in Show, the Friends for Life final and agility displays. There will also be video clips featuring highlights from around the show and archive footage from video clips stretching back to the 1980s.  These will run alongside exclusive videos from recent Kennel Club events such as the Discover Dogs show at Earls Court in London.

All of the live, archive footage and catch up service is free to view on YouTube and dog lovers can subscribe in advance for updates and the ability to rate and share videos social networks. Visit
