Jackie Stewart: The Flying Scot
BBC4 - 11 April 2009
Sir Jackie Stewart is one of Britain's all time great sporting personalities - winner of three Formula 1 world championships, 27 grand prix and ranked as one of the ten greatest racing drivers of all time.
With his black cap and sideburns, he became an unmistakable icon in the glorious era of style, glamour and speed of the 1960s and 70s.
Venturing beyond the world of motor sport, this documentary is an insight into the triumphs and tragedies of Stewart's eventful life, and includes contributions from friends and colleagues such as Niki Lauda, Emerson Fittipaldi, Sean Connery, Murray Walker and Edsel Ford, as well as the last ever interview with the late Ken Tyrrell, without whom Stewart's career might have taken a very different turn.
Produced by Stewart's youngest son Mark, the film is enriched with family photographs, home movies and scrapbooks kept by Lady Helen Stewart that document her husband's career.
NOTE: This program appears to be an omnibus version (possibly re-edited) of a 4 part series originally shown on Channel 4 in 2002 [url]http://ftvdb.bfi.org.uk/sift/series/37093[/url]. However I believe it is the first showing of the 'series' as a single broadcast even though it is copyright dated 2002.
