Great British Cars: Motoring In The Golden Age
Celebrate an era when Britain ruled the roads in this fascinating journey, including glorious footage which reveals a cavalcade of the best cars this country has produced, from the prestige of Rolls Royce to the practicality of Dagenham’s Fords. You are treated to wonderful close-ups of perfectly maintained and lovingly restored classics still running today, as well as archive footage of iconic machines in action on road and track in their heyday.

From design workshops and factory floors to race circuit and modern day parades, this is an essential guide to the most important vehicles in British automotive history.

'Great British Cars' opens with a look at the luxury liners, including the Rolls Royce Corniche, Bentley Continental R Fastback and the ‘space, grace and pace’ offered by Jaguar with its groundbreaking Mark VII and S-Type.

We then move on to the sports car classics, including Jaguar’s record-breaking XK120 and legendary E-Type, Aston Martin’s sought-after Zagato and iconic DB5, and Colin Chapman’s ingenious Lotus designs, plus the unforgettable Austin Healeys, MGs and the Jensen FF.

Then we have the family favourites, led by the British-built Fords created at Dagenham. Alongside the reliable runabouts like the Anglia and Prefect, we examine the sporting pedigree of the Lotus Cortina, the Escort and the Capri with some action-packed racing footage and contributions from the likes of three-times Formula One World Champion Sir Jackie Stewart. Finally we pay tribute to the contribution of the design genius Alec Issigonis with an examination of two of his most famous creations, the Morris Minor and the Mini.

Alongside the mouth watering footage, informed commentary brimming with detailed technical information ensures Great British Cars is an authoritative examination of Motoring in the Golden Age.
