From Cardiff to Las Vegas and on to South Africa, Million Dollar Pigeon follows three British hopefuls to the most lucrative pigeon race in the world.  Matthews explores the at times obsessive world of modern fancying where birds can sell for over £100,000 and grown men become possessed by the power of the pigeon.

“A splendid documentary that treats its subjects as lovingly as they treated the contents of their own pigeon lofts”
Daily Express

“Another terrific observational documentary
from Morgan Matthews”

“This is an absorbing programme which takes you into the passionate, guano-festooned world of Britain’s pigeon fancy and beyond. A television jewel”
