Eddie Stobart, part of the Warrington-based Stobart Group, a transport and logistics provider, is featuring in an hour long television documentary this week.

A television crew has followed millionaires William Stobart and Andrew Tinkler for the digital channel ITV4, as they juggle a daily routine from running racehorses to developing Carlisle airport; sponsoring World Rally Championship cars and floating the company on the stock exchange.

Eddie Stobart: Smart Truckers is narrated by Phoenix Nights star Paddy McGuinness and was produced by Brilliant Trees Media, based near Carlisle, which also produced the regional series Kings of the Road.

Kings of the Road was an eight-part series about the company, which was screened on ITV Border and attracted an audience share peaking at 44% late last year.

  • Eddie Stobart: Smart Truckers is on ITV4 Thursday 19 February at 8pm.
