MPs back One Man and His Dog campaign

THE campaign to save the BBC television programme One Man and His Dog has secured the support of 21 MPs from across the three main parties.

The shows presenter, Robin Page, has already presented 3500 letters to the BBC from Daily Telegraph readers calling for the show to be saved.

The corporation has hinted it might be ready to bow to public clamour and continue to run the 23-year-old programme.
