    Lots of archive film (surprisingly little actually racing – just enough of a glimpse to let you know there is a vast amount of top quality footage waiting to be marketed!) from the earliest years up to the early 70′s, not all of it quite what you’d expect – including as it does some Mille Miglia. As usual, trying to cover too much ground in too small a space. Only 3 circuits are covered, using original film. Surely there is a massive market for a more comprehensive coverage of Formula 1: the FIA approved seasonal discs are just pathetic (I just can’t imagine Bernie Ecclestone having anything to do with it), and not worth buying, as you are lucky to see 10 minutes of each race. I cannot find anything on the market which provides a professionally produced (i.e. BBC standard)history of F1.

    These were very interesting and the history of the 5 circuits was very informing. Once again the commentator was very hard to hear above the noise of the cars even with the volume right up [No I am not hard of hearing!]

    The History of GP dvd i have reviewed separately (it’s ok but imo the weakest of the set). The two other discs (circuits) are more focused and better ‘chronogically’ presented – yeah! However, there are still issues with the sound on Vol1, the soundtrack is too loud in parts and drowns out the narration. Vol 2 is much better.
    The ‘good’ – old footage, you have to bear in mind this is goping to be limited compared to the extensive coverage since the 70s/80s. There are some clips that make you appreciate the lack of safety and driver skill.
    The ‘bad’ – lack of post 1970s footage, i can only think it is because of copyright issues. Some of the sections/years are very short, i would have liked more on the evolution of F1 too, feels like a budget set.
    There is some other non-F1 footage, some nice interviews with drivers.
    Just worth 3-stars at £7 but I’m still looking for something that evokes memories like the recent BBC Racing Legends programmes (Moss/Stewart)…someone somewhere can put all this footage together…BBC PLEASE HELP?
