Still, good on him for both choices; he obviously still has the 'fever'.

The one thing that grated was Martin's constant reference to 'Formulee One'; never heard of it.
The Pantera conundrum - anything to do with his involvement with Ford? They owned a majority in de Tomaso at one point.

Yes, that razzed me right off.

I hear the McRae one has been canned because a copyright dispute that is unresolved. Shame.

Now looking forward to watching the one about a multiple World Champion, that should be good.

Likewise.

I didn't find it shallow at all. I've read a lot about Moss over the years and I wasn't expecting (or needing) an in-depth analysis. Highly enjoyable.

I read somewhere else that it hasn't been indefinitely canned as rumoured but will be shown sometime next year.

Haven't got around to seeing these yet (recorded them though) but the McRae one is what I was really looking forward to. Hope they can sort it out and air it.

I thought the JYS one was a million times better than the Moss one, he came over as a much more astute, humble man.
I'd love to see a programme about the Aussie triple World Champion.

I hope this is the case and that it hasn't been canned. Chris Hoy seemed to be in the dark about what was happening with it a few days ago... he was quite shocked that it wasn't going to go out on the evening it was scheduled to, so I guess this copyright issue, or whatever it is, must have emerged very late in the day.

Does anyone remember the C4 programme of many years ago, that ran through the night, entitled "Who do you think you are Srirling Moss?" it was a heady mixture of Doug Nye interviewing Sir Stirling and clips of many of his races? I remember setting the alarm for every 3 hours during the night to change video tapes. I still have the 9? hours on 3 tapes, but nothing to play them on!! I seem to remember that it was an EXCELLENT production.

I dont remember the programme although i think i might of heard of it. 9 hours of something based on motorsports thats pretty good going really.

I would love to see the programme, as im a bit of a fool for the old footage. I like yourself am lacking in a VHS player. Its funny how quickly obsolete they have become, i found the whole 2007 F1 season i had recorded on VHS the other day and thought thats really not that long ago, only 5 years.

Some people have VHS to media file converters so your best bet would be trying to find someone or some company who have one if you wanted to see the programme again.

It was like the best pub chat in the world...there was another one as well, I think devoted to Jim Clark. Alain de Cadenet compering, Roebuck as a guest.

I've got a combined VHS/DVD player/recorder if you want them copied to DVD, Joyce.....

I was massively looking forward to the Colin McRae one, I really hope that it gets aired sometime in the near future. The programme on JYS made me do some research on a racing series that I previously had never heard of: Formulee One. Unfortunately, I can`t seem to find any historical evidence that it ever existed.

I wasn`t expecting JYS to be such a humble person, he does not come across that way when he is shown in the F1 Paddock.

The thing is aswell, Colins death is still viewed with some degree of law in Scotland, he did die doing something he shouldn't, and the BBC are not likely to be treading heavily when it comes to this sort of thing, so they will have taken a decision to can it, I suspect with due regard to the families of the lads killed in the accident, not Colin and his family.

Bizarrely I much preferred the Moss one, Sir Patrick was completely in Awe of Moss (Someone I profess to not liking much) and that really came out and was really rather touching.

the Stewart one was good aswell, but I got a little tired of the lets make the chef have a good time whil telling a story.

There was too much about him playing and not enough about Jackie, even though I would know most of it anyway!!
