Ditto

The balance missing from FvsF:

Slightly O/T, next Wednesday on BBC4 they are showing a documentary on Steve McQueen’s Le Mans and why it was such a failure globally in terms of money.

No doubt the producers of Le Mans film needed to make something to appeal to all so they can make enough profit from it, rather than something solely for the racing purist as McQueen’s Le Mans was

Oh thanks for the heads up I will put that onto record.

I also noticed that Le Mans 66 is now available in Sky Store to stream or keep.

Looks like it is the full-length doc from 2015, "Steve McQueen: The Man & Le Mans".

Had a rare trip to the cinema a little while ago to see this. Seems like another lifetime somehow! Enjoyed it... Good mix of entertainment and excitement whilst not straying *too* far from reality.

Really? I may have to take a look. Or perhaps I won't. We will have to see how that pans out. Will be interesting.
