Mon Mome and Liam Treadwell on their way to winning the 2008 race
The famous Grand National meeting at Aintree will be the first horse racing event to be screened in High Definition by the BBC.
The three-day coverage includes the Grand National on Saturday 10 April.
The race, which has been a British sporting institution since 1839, is the ultimate test of speed, strength and stamina over four-and-a-half miles.
As well as broadcasting in HD, two new high-speed cameras will be used at The Chair and Becher's Brook.
These cameras capture the action for high-speed replays as the horses make their way over the imposing fences.
The vortex camera will also be in use, operating from ground level to 100ft with 360-degree rotation, showing the full spectacle of the field as they go past the Aintree grandstands.
