Design Classics was a series broadcast on BBC2 in 1987, one of which [London Underground Map]
was re-run on BBC4 in 2007 as part of 'Tube Night' This programme is another one from the original series.
A profile of the Volkswagen Beetle which transcended its Third Reich past to become the loveable 'peoples' car'
as portrayed in Walt Disney films.
Volkswagen once claimed that their car was (with the coke bottle) the most famous mass produced shape in the world.
Certainly no car has ever made such a place for itself in popular affections.
The Beetle isn't just a car it's the classic of automotive design.
