Martin Clunes: My Travels and Other Animals  

Episode 8

Martin’s labrador puppy Arthur goes to dog training, but he doesn’t see Martin as the pack leader. Malibu Hills is Martin’s next stop, where he meets one of the most famous dog families, that of Lassie, and he then travels to the Arabian desert to ride with Bedouin horseman Ali Al Ameri, who trains the world’s oldest man-made horses – the Arabian - for TV shows. Martin then spends time with Josef Svoboda, a logging superstar from the Czech Republic who uses heavy horses in his work. In Thailand, Martin sees how song birds are encouraged to sing louder than their peers in lucrative song competitions, before finally Martin learns more about a discovery known as The Horseboy Method used by hundreds as a way of treating autistic children.
