Not an F1 show as such, group B rallying, unfortunately just starting now on BBC4.. (12.00AM 14th December) Should be on iPlayer though for anyone interested :


From the producer of Grand Prix: The Killer Years and the Grierson-nominated Deadliest Crash: The 1955 Le Mans Disaster.

In the 1980s rallying was more popular than Formula 1. 'Group B' machines had taken the world by storm. De-regulation opened the way for the most exciting cars ever to hit the motorsport scene. Nothing like it has ever happened since.
'This is the fastest rallying there has ever been' - Peter Foubister.

For four wild and crazy years manufacturers scrambled to build ever more powerful cars to be driven by fearless mavericks who could handle the extreme power. The sport was heading out of control and the unregulated mayhem ended abruptly in 1986 after a series of horrific tragedies. This is the story of when fans, ambition, politics and cars collided.

'The fans were crazy. As the cars sped by the spectators ran into the road!' - Ari Vatanen

'They were playing with their lives'.

'To go rallying is madness. This was refined madness' - John Davenport

Featuring world champaions Ari Vatanen, Walter Rohrl, Stig Blomqvist, plus Michel Mouton, Cesar Fiorio, Jean Todt and many many more.

Sky F1 have their 15 min testing coverage followed by teds notebook on right now. Just had the Alonso interview and he looked very unhappy, and I'd go as far to say he looked pretty unwell.

Unfortunately we don't get BBC here. I'd love to see the Moss Stewart Mille Miglia show. I had Dennis Jenkinson's book from when Jenkinson, the writer, rode with Moss as co-pilot in the winning car.

'Driven: The Fastest Woman in the World' a documentary about Susie Wolff aired on BBC Two the other night, it is available on the BBC IPlayer now. Features Lewis Hamilton, Toto Wolff, David Coulthard and Ralf Schumacher.
Support: Kimi, Lewis, Jenson, THE HULK and Super Kevin Magnussen

As much as I am interested in seeing the story of someone with palsy racing, I feel that this comes under the category of Lewis Hamilton's over-exposure. Very keen for other F1 shows, I just listened to the audiobook of Murray Walker's autobiography so I'm in the zone....

BBC 2 at 9pm on Sunday 14th.

Hunt vs Lauda: F1's Greatest Racing Rivals

DURATION: 1 HOUR
James Hunt has never been equalled. Could swashbuckling Hunt catch the scientific Lauda? Could Niki overcome an appalling crash to come back from the dead and fight James all the way to the last race of the season?

This powerful story captures the heart of the 1970s - told through unseen footage and exclusive interviews with the people who were really there - the team managers, families, journalists and friends who were in the front row of the season that changed Formula 1 forever.
__

I'd say that Senna vs Prost was actually F1's greatest rivalry as Lauda and Hunt were good friends off the track before, during and after 76. But still I expect this to be good documentary about a highlight season of F1 history.

At least it'll be accurate unlike the upcoming Rush.

True. Although I am still looking forward immensely to Rush I am under no illusions it'll have a lot of dramatic license rather than being a documentary.

Just from a quick look on the youtube link, it's not a rehash. They've interviewed a lot of the same people again, but they all they're all older!!!

Nothing like an open mind and the ability to enjoy a film for what it is :-P

Although I only saw about 40 mins of the program before falling asleep, it did seem a little biased towards Hunt. The interviews with Daniele Audetto really made Ferrari out to be the bad guys. Although I did learn some things, especially about the British GP that year that I didn't know about (although most fans who know their F1 history probably did).
There is no theory of evolution, just a list of animals that Chuck Norris allows to live.

The mid 70's was when I first really started to watch F1 and watching the Hunt v Lauda prog - i thought it was pretty well done.
Even my missus enjoyed it - and she only has a passing interest....... :]

The Hunt-Lauda documentary was ok, but Madness on Wheels: Rallying's Craziest Years about the Group B era that just finished on BBC4 really is excellent.

Should be on iPlayer for a week now. I highly recommend catching it: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0 ... est_Years/

hunt / lauda doc was superb, and seemed to follow the way i remembered it,

people have to remember that lauda was not popular in the uk, he was thought on like schumi or vettel are now, too robotic and little personality,
James was a star, he didn't care about appearances, was a brilliant character and gave a pretty screwed up country ( the UK was not doing well) something to cheer for.

Ferrari were far more political and they did raise eyebrows in the way they tried to help their cause. I thought the doc showed it really well, especially from a UK point of view.
We will never see another JH , because the media rips them apart if they even start down that road and sponsors now will not risk their brands :frown:

Hunt/Lauda told the story I remember with a few extras and a couple of twists. I remember reading in Lauda's biography that the first time he got back in the car after the accident he couldn't bring himself to get it out of fist gear.

In the recent documentary, they seemed to show him turning up at the Italian GP having not driven the car at all since his crash and then there was this scene of him sitting in the car just not even moving. He looked very alone and very scared.

I think I've always had the impression of how brave he was to race again and to finish fourth and what a brave decision it was to lose the championship because he believed it was too unsafe to race at Japan in the rain.

But this documentary seemed to make him a coward, afraid, scared for his life and no longer prepared to take risks.

I think the movie, Rush, does something similar in the drivers' briefing before the Nurburgring race.

I don't think that's fair at all.

I've been in a couple of life threatening situations, and it affects you subconciously for quite a long time in a way you don't expect. You think you're going to be okay then suddenly it hits you. I know exactly where he was coming from, and I admire his fortitude, even though I'm not a great fan of Lauda. Burns are also a lot worse than you realise until you experience them. Broken bones are easy in comparison.

I wasn't a great fan of Hunt either, although he was good entertainment. His attitude towards women wasn't great. I'm sorry to say he exploited the ones that fell for him to the maximum.

Absolutely. A great little documentary.

Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?
