    Hi.

    I enjoyed this last night, my only criticism is that there is not enough Guy Martin, our modern day Fred Dibnah

    I watched Shep from U.S.A tonight, well done Shep!

    Sounds like Monty Python? But not sure.

    There was certainly a regular Fast Show sketch like this where the reporter stood in front of the dog, oblivious to the fact that he was completely comatose

    We went to the World Sheep Dog Trials when they were held in Bala in 2002. It was one of the best days out I've ever had. Watching the dogs and shepherds working together was fantastic. There were other events and stalls etc, plus some excellent food. The highlight of the day however was when one of the dogs decided he'd had enough and jumped into the crowd and ended up hiding behind us. Great fun.

    Watching Guy Martin tonight, isn`t that just Christopher Eccleston with a pair of stick on side burns?

    Couldn't agree more. I'm a big motorbike racing fan and Guy is a legend. Love him. Didn't rate the girl who presented this with him she was a bit clueless (and not in a good way like Guy)

    I wasn`t keen on her either, she was ok but didn`t seem very experienced, maybe she is, but I`ve never seen her before anyway. They should have had a more well known presenter in her place IMO. Wonder why Kate Humble didn`t do it?

    Ellie Harrison - she's done some presenting on "Country Tracks" an ITV version of the BBC's "Tracks2 with Ray Mears, but Ray didn't want to do the ITV version. Another presenter on "Country Tracks" is Ben Fogle so you can see they went for likeable but not necessarily very knowledgeable

    You can see the trials on More4's 4OD
