In Robson Green's "Tales from Northumberland" he tries his hand at Cumberland and Westmorland wrestling. The episode screens on Monday 23rd February 2015, which answers my "when" question lurking in my mind ever since I shot this on location last year at the Powburn Show.
If you have been to Northumberland you need to follow this series. If you have not been to Northumberland you need to follow this series. As I was born and raised there I have something of an affinity with the local agricultural shows, they are all in my diary, and attend as many as I can across the county. I think my favourite is the Hethpool Show (very small and local, great atmosphere, stunning location), the Alwinton Show (a bit bigger and last in the season) and of course the Powburn Show (I had family living in the village for many years). I look forward to watching the rest of this insightful series. http://on.fb.me/1CSPJIS
