Description: Producer's notes: Never before, and never since, the 1960s has Britain been so to the fore of Formula One motor racing. Increased safety, efficiency and agility in car manufacture were complemented by short, fast, exciting races. Charismatic drivers endeared themselves to a growing audience. From the very outset of the decade, the years 1960-69 were to be remembered as a time of great significance and excitement. Now you can enjoy the extraordinary highs and lows of this 'very British era' as motoring historian Neville Hay recalls, with superb archive action footage and interviews, the many memorable races and characters of a momentous period in Grand Prix history. 1960 Brabham wins his 2nd World title, Clark and Surtees arrive on the scene. 1961 Hill and Ferrari dominate the first year of the 1.5 litre formula. 1962 Hill (BRM V8) wins the World Drivers Championship from Clark (Lotus 25 Climax V8). 1963 Clark (Lotus 25) storms through to his first World Championship title.
