TV Trainer (BBC-1 1991-1992, Mark Greenstreet, Nigel Davenport) Published 2 years ago on December 25, 2016 Drama series Trainer focused on Mike Hardy who is given the chance by horse owner James Brant to start his own racing stables. Against all the odds and setbacks Mike slowly makes his way to the top. Mike is divorced and a heavy drinker and working as second in command to the vile Hugo Latimer when the series begins but cleans his act up when Brant shows enough faith in him to let him go it alone. Also lending a helping hand to Mike’s ambitions are the wealthy Rachel Ware and well-to-do gambler John Grey. This was Gerard Glaister’s follow up to Howard’s Way and us cut very much from the same cloth. There is a bit more story of the week aspect to it than the serialised Howard’s Way but it is an entertaining enough series with strong performances all round. production details UK / BBC1 / 20×50 minute episodes / 1 September 1991 – 2 December 1992 Creator/Producer: Gerard Glaister / Theme Music: Mike Read Sung by Cliff Richard cast MARK GREENSTREET as Mike Hardy NIGEL DAVENPORT as James Brant DAVID McCALLUM as John Grey SUSANNAH YORK as Rachel Ware NICOLA KING as Frances Ross (Season one CLAIRE OBERMAN as Alex Farrell(Season Two) PATRICK RYECART as Hugo Latimer DES McALEER as Joe Hogan SEASON ONE 1 September – 24 November 1991 1.
