On-The-Line: Cradle to Grave (BBC, 1993)
Part 1 | Part 2
BBC documentary exposing the cruelty of the greyhound industry, including the illegal practice of blooding. Quotes from programme: "It's widely known that if you give a dog a live animal to kill, on occasion I've heard of cats being used - this makes the dog more keener and makes it perform better. It's because they've had the taste of blood...The use of live bait - in this case rabbits - is against the law in Ireland and the UK. Blooding is, in fact, an imprisonable offence. Nevertheless, blooding is a common training technique and in rural areas in Ireland, the use of live lures is an open secret."
