Genre: Medical

Joe Inglis, star of BBC 1's award-winning series Vets in Practice has written his diary for a year. It spans his first job after finishing training with a small Devonshire practice where farmyard crises loom large, to an urban one where domestic pets in trouble are more the norm - although he had to give the kiss of life to a snake on camera! Even the newly qualified, raw young vet, can see that there are good vets and bad, sound practice and short-cuts. Joe Inglis' diary is very amusing and full of incident - but also outspoken about some aspects of 'caring' for animals, the countryside and about people who keep animals.

Movin' On Up takes a fun ride through the then-and-now of a great city and its ball club. The city and its team have cooked up a partnership as strong and as strange as scrapple and toast over the past 121 years. Since 1883, the Phillies have been on the move-at times slowly, many times glacially, and sometimes quickly.

But Movin' On Up is really about people, past, and present-not only players, but others who help and helped Philly move on up to the fabulous sports town we know today. The journey rolls along humorous and poignant episodes, old and new, that have splashed Philly and its fan with the signature color that both fascinates and infuriates outsiders. As this new millennium dashes toward the midpoint of its first decade, Philly's Phillies have a new park, a new team, and a new attitude.
