Search Dog Documentary

13 Jun 2020

During a cold and rainy weekend in February, before the #COVID19 restrictions were in place, a group of 3rd-year Digital Television Production students from Ravensbourne University London joined Mountain Rescue Search Dogs England (MRSDE) dogs, handlers and dogsbodies as they completed one of their regular training sessions at Widdop and Langfield.

The students were looking for subjects for part of their final major project and being impressed by the work the Search dogs do, they wanted members of Calder Valley Search & Rescue Team (CVSRT) to be subjects in their documentary. The film provides a glimpse of the work that the Search dogs do for missing people in the Calder Valley and further afield.

They managed all aspects of the filming, production and editing for their project and as a thank you to the team they raised £150 for CVSRT alongside the fundraising activity to make the documentary itself.

All the dogs, handlers and dogsbodies really enjoyed working with the the students and we can’t wait to watch the finished documentary. Follow the link to watch a short edit - > Search Dogs Documentary Clip <

Thank you to all the students involved in making the film, you can see more of their work on Facebook and Instagram under the name @animalsoncall and good luck for your degree results.
