The True Story of Swansea Jack - Evolution of a Hero

The incredible story of a troublesome pup that would eventually become the pride of Swansea. The only dog to ever be awarded the canine equivalent of the Victoria Cross on two occasions.

An epic journey that started from the bleak tundra of the frozen North and the hot dry African Savannah; to the crumbling docks of Swansea during the Great Depression where two timelines converge. A heroic story of a very heroic dog who became known as Swansea Jack and was a celebrity in his own right. Join storyteller, Carl Gough, as he tells this acclaimed story of a truly remarkable dog who became the pride of Swansea.
