Arkle documentary wins award

Arkle: The Legend Lives on, directed by Luke McManus, was presented with the award for the Best in Sports category at the Celtic Media Festival at Inverness on 22nd April.

The documentary was aired on Channel 4 and TG4 last year on the occasion of the Cheltenham Festival and once again this year – fitting as Arkle won the Gold Cups 50 years ago each year!

The documentary mixes archive footage with interviews with sports and racing personalities from then and now. As the name suggests it demonstrates how the story of Arkle refuses to go away and as he becomes legend, his story lives on.
