This documentary was broadcast by the BBC in 2012 as part of the “Timeshift” series. It takes a look back at the golden age of British Sports Cars using both in period and modern footage to emphasize the craze around the Jaguar’s, Austin-Healy’s, MG’s and Triumph’s of the early days.
Featuring interviews with legend Stirling Moss among others, this video is a real treat for anyone with an historical eye for the past in automotive history. They couldn’t build these iconic sports cars fast enough and it was a time of boom in otherwise gloomy Britain. It was a manufacturing frenzy like no other and a time that will forever have cemented it’s place in history as pivotal to the lineage of the sports car.
