While I wouldn't go so far as to call it the "Best Documentary" it was certainly the most talked about, & the one that has started the ball rolling for improvements in the KC & Government.

I very much hope it wins

It was the best in the sense that it said something that had needed saying for years, and said it well.
Congratulations to Jemima and her team.

She may have to be presented with the award from her prison cell.
This is when she is prosecuted for the Racist and offensive remarks made in the Eugenics slur.
My complaont to the Police is on hold waiting for Ofcom to rule.
By the way is JH going to donate her fat fee from the British Biased Corporation to the KC charitable trust which raises money toward dna research into genetic problems. Or will she donate it to the Animal Health Trust ? I think neither as she cares little for the pedigree dog or its breeders. Her program is a Puppy Farmers Treaty.

If this happens she should try to get Patrick Burns to come to the UK to testify in her defense:

After reading MIKED's comment I think it's very likely he's the same Mike that wrote this on the Standard Poodle Forum.
