  • MENTORN MEDIA PRODUCES FAST-TURNAROUND DOC ABOUT SCRUFFTS FOR CHANNEL 4

    Channel 4 has commissioned a fast-turnaround documentary from Mentorn Media, part of the Tinopolis Group, that will look at the family canines competing to win the Scruffts title as part of the annual Crufts competition.

    Crufts is the world's largest dog show celebrating pedigree pooches, but in this one hour programme, titled 'Scruffts: Britain's Favourite Dog', the focus is on the crossbreeds most of us own as pets, who will take part in Scruffts, the nation's favourite crossbreed competition.

    Whittled down from 2000 entrants, the documentary will follow the stories of the six handlers and their six dogs as they're put through their paces in individual categories, such as Child's Best Friend, Most Handsome Dog, Golden Oldie and Best Rescue, until an overall champion is announced.

    'Scruffts: Britain's Favourite Dog', was commissioned by Anna Miralis, Channel 4 Commissioning Editor, Documentaries, and will be executive produced by Mark Roberts, Creative Director Mentorn Media, and produced by Rob McCabe for Mentorn Media.

    Anna Miralis said: "This will be an entertaining and witty programme that will have something for everyone, from the preparations to the final as the owners prepare to showcase their dogs. 'Scruffts: Britain's Favourite Dog' will give viewers a chance to see exactly what it takes to make a Scruffts champion."

    Rob McCabe said: "The Scruffts competition is a chance to shine the spotlight firmly on the crossbreed dogs that are also our lovable pets. We're delighted that Channel 4 have commissioned this programme, which will give viewers at home a warm insight not only to the contest, but to those handlers and dogs taking part."

    'Scruffts: Britain's Favourite Dog' will air on Wednesday 16th March at 8pm on Channel 4.
