The fourth series of the smash-hit dog behavioural show Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly is set to return to our screens this year.
And Channel 5 is searching for Manchester’s most misbehaving pups to take part.
Following the “overwhelming success” of the previous three series – which reached a ratings high of 1.7 million – and after hordes of people up and down the country have welcomed four-legged friends into their family over the last year of lockdown, it’s been confirmed that Dogs Behaving (Very) Badly will return in 2021.
Expert dog handler Graeme Hall is now on the look-out for desperate pet owners who are in need of a helping hand to turn their badly-behaved dogs into model citizens for the next series.
Graeme is known as ‘the dogfather’, and is on a quest to restore harmony in the canine world.
With more than 10 years’ experience in the game, Graeme has built his reputation on finding quick but long-lasting fixes to almost any dog behaviour problem, and believes that no dog is necessarily naughty, some just need a bit of guidance to learn right from wrong.
Graeme travels all around the country as part of the hit series to help struggling dog owners solve their pet’s problems.
The show’s synopsis reads: “Britain is a nation of dog lovers, but what happens when domestic bliss turns to chaos? Luckily, there’s someone you can call.
“Master dog trainer, Graeme Hall is on a mission to restore harmony across the country. And with over 12 years’ experience, he has built his reputation on finding quick but long-lasting fixes to almost any unwanted dog behaviour, helping to train over 5,000 canines and their owners.
“His mantra is clear: ‘Any Dog, Any Age, Any Problem.’
“The series follows the work of the highly experienced dog behaviour expert, Graeme Hall, AKA ‘The Dogfather’, as he travels across Britain to help out-of-control dogs and their desperate owners – transforming their home life in the process.
“Graeme meets three tricky dogs in every episode and uses his fool-proof techniques to fix their behaviour in record time”.

BBC is looking for Mancs to take part in next series of Race Across the World
Are you a fan of travelling? Got yourself a bit of a competitive streak in your nature? This might just be your calling then.
The BBC is currently casting for the next series of Race Across the World.
The broadcaster has announced that the BAFTA-winning hit show is set to return to our TV screens for a third series later this year, and producers are now on the look-out for “intrepid duos” of all ages who reckon they’re ready to take a step into the unknown, and embark on an epic race across land and sea – and that includes Greater Manchester residents.
With applications for the next series of the massively-popular show now open, nomadic Mancs are being encouraged to take part.
On a limited budget and away from the luxuries of modern technology and conveniences, those lucky applicants selected to take part in the next series will get the chance to experience life in some of the world’s most beautiful and remote locations.
Navigating their way across thousands of miles, they’ll travel through spectacular scenery and dynamic cities, visit ancient wonders, learn local customs, and take part in time-honoured traditions.
But, as producers are keen to point out, “the physical journey is only half of the story”.
That’s because, as the contestants take on the challenge of travelling across the world, the greatest thing they’ll discover along the way could actually be about themselves and one another.
Putting out a UK-wide casting call on the BBC website this week, producers Studio Lambert wrote: “We are now accepting applications for the next series of Race Across the World. This experience is open to all, whether you’re a seasoned traveller or total novice.
“We want to hear what undertaking a trip like this would mean to you, and with a cash prize at stake, what lengths you would go to to win.

“Maybe you’re looking to change something in your life? Or are keen to share the journey with someone special like a family member, best friend, or someone you’ve lost touch with. You may even have a very personal reason for wanting to travel at this time in your life or explore a particular part of the world.”
Fancy it then?
Applications for the third series of Race Across the World are now open for anyone over 18 years of age, with a deadline date of Friday 19 April 2024, and you can find out more information and apply via the BBC website.
StreamGM’s Spill The Sound live music and interview series is back and it’s super nostalgic
Ever miss the old days of proper music telly? We’re talking Freshly Squeezed, Popworld and the T4 days; Kerrang TV and, of course, Top of the Pops. Well, StreamGM’s exclusive online series, Spill The Sound is keeping that throwback format alive and the new season has just arrived.
Spearheaded by the pioneers over at StreamGM and live streaming music platform, Spill The Sound is back for series three of the brilliant live music and talk show series.
Featuring a mix of exclusive sets and laid-back conversations with up-and-coming artists from around Greater Manchester and the North West around new releases, gigs and festival dates as well as local names who just fancy sitting in a bath filled with plastic balls (because why not?), it’s great fun.
Filmed over at StreamGM’s central hub over at The Yard in Cheetham Hill and hosted by TV presenter Louise Schofield, the latest edition of the digital series drops at 7pm on Friday, 29 February.
On a mission to recapture the magic of that oh-so-nostalgic Gen X and Gen Z music programming, StreamGM’s Spill The Sound blends new and unsigned acts alongside established headliners, with the likes of The Lottery Winners, Abbie Ozard, The Covasettes and more having already featured.
The latest season is already shaping up to be a belter, with rising Oldham singer-songwriter Seb Lowe, Macclesfield‘s genre-bending indie band Cassia, fast-growing Liverpool stars Red Rum Club and plenty of others to come, there are some serious names on this year’s roster.
We’re even lucky enough to be getting a few quick behind-the-scenes interviews with some of the artists ourselves in and around their live performances and sit-downs with Louise, so keep your eyes peeled for them too.
It might be a smaller scale approach with live performances strictly down the lens and in front of those lucky few that get to have a sneak peek behind the camera — a.k.a. us lucky lot over at The Manc Audio — but you only have to see the space over at The Yard to see how cool the whole set-up is.
Taking place on a bi-weekly basis (that’s once every two weeks, not twice a week), the quirky bathtub-based interview series isn’t like anything on TV and you can watch it completely free over on the Spill The Sound YouTube channel and StreamGM’s website.
Speaking of which, if you’re yet to tune into one of their live streams or stumble across this groundbreaking and grassroots music for all platform, you can learn more about it HERE.
We’re all about spotlighting new artists trying to make it on our wonderful music scene so it goes without saying that we love what these guys are doing and we’ll keep doing our very best to do the same on our end too.
