English | Documentary | Size: 452 MB
Nine-year-old Harry isn’t like his friends at school. While they are playing computer games at home, he is down the allotment looking after his pigeons.
Harry from Newcastle is embarking on his first pigeon racing season. Inspired by his dad’s love of the birds, he is going to see if he can rear a
team of winners and take on the more mature members of the South Gosforth Homing Society.
He has to learn about how to keep, train and nurture the birds ahead of their first race. With fewer than 200 young fliers in the UK, Harry and his dad Shaun hope to inspire the next generation of pigeon racers by giving a talk at his school. On race day, Harry is up at 3am with the excitement of seeing his birds come back. Will he have a winner?
