Man and Beast with Martin Clunes, a new two-part documentary from British television channel ITV.

Martin Clunes sets out on an international journey to investigate the extraordinary relationship between man and beast in a two-part documentary for ITV.

“Every day I read some new research about animals which troubles me.

chickens, we’re told, are possessed of significant brainpower. To a woolly Western liberal thespian farmer like me that raises all sorts of issues: like how can I raise an animal only to send it to a slaughterhouse?” said Clunes.

From birds to bears, and from pets to primates, involving ancient and modern techniques and partnerships, Martin observes humans and animals working side by side in ways that have existed and evolved during hundreds of millennia.

“We’ve got a tiny herd of Dexter Cattle – they’re the smallest breed in Europe. They’re beef cattle and in due course the boys will be sent for slaughter. But that doesn’t mean that I show them any less love,” adds Martin.
