1993 On-The-Line: Cradle to Grave (BBC2)

Using undercover tactics, journalists investigate cruelty in greyhound racing in both the UK and Ireland.

All essential aspects of the greyhound racing industry such as over breeding, training with live bait, staggering injury figures, doping, vivisection and export to Spain are brilliantly portrayed in this award winning documentary.

Seven people were convicted of animal cruelty as a result of the investigation.

Yet the most shocking feature of this daring film is that despite being made 15 years ago it remains as relevant now as it has ever been before.
