British Social History - The Motor Car
Presented by David Bellamy, no less, this great, though be it short, programme covers the history of the motor car.
Tons of great old footage including a brilliant clip from Ford Films called 'Your Driving Test'.
It's very informative, and again as with all the educational programmes from this period, crams loads of information into a mere 20 minutes.
Great Quotes from the Programme.
"It took four hours to prepare a car for a drive"
"Dung free traffic jams had arrived"
"In two days you could drive from London to Cornwall"
"Taking a right hand bend on the wrong side is asking for trouble - and the examiner doesn't like it"
"More people had a car in 1960 than had a washing machine"
