The Irish Road to Cheltenham, a five-part documentary series produced by Animo Television for RTÉ in association with Horse Racing Ireland, followed five Irish jump jockeys on their journey to compete at Cheltenham.
Offering rare access into the world of Irish National Hunt Jockeys the programme documented the risks and sacrifices on and off the track for the competitors.
We know it can be a challenge to make a specialist subject like horseracing appeal to a general audience but this well-paced programme was packed with enough passion, human interest and fascinating insight to keep viewers of all interests gripped.
