Aston Martin: The David Brown Years
When industrialist Sir David Brown bought Aston Martin he began a 25-year programme of development which would see the marque established as a prestige brand, and become dominant on the racetrack. This nostalgic film fully explores this period, from Sir David's acquisition in 1947 to his decision to sell the firm in 1972. 

A feast of magnificent archive footage charts the racing history of Aston Martin, from the DB1 to the DP214, including the exploits of such legendary names as Stirling Moss, Carroll Shelby, Tony Brooks, Roy Salvadori, Peter Collins, Geoff Duke and more. We are treated to rare film of Aston Martin's great racing machines in action at the Mille Miglia, Silverstone, Goodwood, Sebring, the Nurburgring, Oulton Park, Dundrod and, of course, Le Mans - where the company scored a hard-fought victory in 1959.

There are also interviews with many of the greats, including Shelby, Salvadori, Brooks and fabled team boss John Wyer.

The programme examines the road car programme throughout the David Brown years, with evocative footage - including plenty of lingering close-ups of true design classics - following the evolving DB models up to the final under Sir David's ownership - the DB S.

The film concludes with a look at the post-DB years, right up to the iconic DB7 of the 1990s, which continued the David Brown legacy into a new generation.
