A glimpse of life in a sheep shearing gang
The UK sheep shearing season
A large proportion of Britain’s wool crop is harvested by dedicated shearing contractors.
The shearing season is physically demanding, and the practitioners are highly skilled.
“Blood, Sweat and Shears” is a fly on the wall documentary that follows a typical shearing season for a Leicestershire-based gang.
This film shows not just the day-to-day grind, but gives an insight into judging shearing competitions and culminates in a Speed Shearing competition where the team pit their skills against shearers from across the world.
How will UK shearers compare?
