My Sky+ failed to pick up the change of time so it failed to record. Shame it's not in the iPlayer but I will have to watch it via You Tube at some point.

I watched the Graham Hill programme last week and the John Surtees one last night (we recorded them).
I thought that the Graham Hill one was very good, but found the John Surtees programme astoundingly good.
Both were what my dear old Dad would have called "Typical BBC Quality!"

I was at Brands with my brother Frank and sister Joyce when John beat Geoff Duke, you couldn't fall over it was so packed, when John went over the line the place erupted, fantastic man.

BBC 1 tonight (Monday) have a program at 9 P.M. about Tommy Byrne a driver that had the talent to rival Senna but did not get there. I think it is worth a watch.

Where is that info from? My listing has Crimewatch scheduled for BBC1 9pm tonight-guess the Byrne doc is the same one that you saw on RTE?

Think it's BBC Northern Ireland only.

Might be available on one of the BBC's digital channels?

The program is called Crash and Burn and if it is not available terrestrial services it should be possible to pick it up on satellite services. I can get all the BBC regional services on a freeview satellite system.

It is on BBC iplayer ; I watched TB race in period and the film is utterly brilliant in portraying both the talent and the flaws of TB . Don't miss it - just search title on iplayer . I watched it this morning .

I finished watching it tonight. Interesting stuff summed up well by Eddie Jordan at the end. The lack of money was always going to be an issue, but the lifestyle and demeanour clearly did for Byrne. After that McLaren test, the world should have been his oyster and perhaps if he'd tested for another top team - who knows? He was clearly never going to be in with a chance of a drive at McLaren. It was a shame to see how low he sank but good to see that he came out the other side - when much worse could have happened, by the sound of it....

BBC4 last night - first the John Surtees documentary which was excellent I thought and then Crash and Byrne. Wow - that was different.

I remember spectating back in the day but hadn't realised Byrne's life story nor quite how highly rated he was. I remember Ayrton da Silva, as he was then, threatening to just pack in and go back to Brazil if no-one was going to back him and the documentary added a different perspective to that!

Both documentaries well worth watching in my opinion.
