Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Shergar was made for British television in 1984. With so offbeat a title, one might suspect that the film was based on a true story, and one's suspicions would be confirmed. It seems that Shergar was the name of a famed British champion race horse, whose kidnapping made headlines for months. The film traces the nationwide search for Shergar and the ongoing media coverage. Stephen Rea, Niall Tobin and Dermot Crowley star in this production, which was first telecast in America over the A&E cable network.
