Saturday morning’s edition of BBC Breakfast featured an item on Pigeon Racing, made when Mike Bushell visited the RPRA One Loft at Tewkesbury a couple of weeks ago.
The weather was superb on the day, and we opened Mike’s eyes up with regard to Pigeon Racing. Raptor predation also got a significant mention. We demonstrated how Pigeon Racing works, and held a short race using Jeremy’s pigeons. Mike also interviewed Jeremy’s daughter, Heather, and was so enthralled with the history and competitive nature of our sport that it is being added into a book he is currently writing that will be on sale around Christmas time.
Eight hours of filming (and many days’ preparation) were condensed down into this three minute feature.
