Yes, saw it the first time around at the end of last year. Stirling Moss one, on next week, is also very good.

I'm lucky enough to have briefly met Sir Jackie, a real legend:)

Just popped on to post about this, what a fascinating insight to an era of real racers. My god those guys had balls and then some. Sky Sports interviewed Jackie for a similiar type of F1 Legends show but this was just as good- more emotive for sure especially watching the end with James driving around Monza.

Whilst it was terrible for some many guys to die, they were raw, hardcore racers and for such a big F1 fan it gives me a lump in my throat to watch videos of these guys racing. Like everything related, it seems like everything had more passion back then I wouldn't minded being around during that era.

You lucky git, he's a legend, the closest I've come to meeting a legend is Bergerac,

I've seen the Graham hill documentary and the Ayrton senna film, these type of documentaries/films mesmerise me the entire time.

They are legends because they redefined the car world that we all happen to love.
And deep down inside we all wish we had that specail bit that they have.

Thete were 3 of these programs made;

Jackie Stewart / James Martin
Stirling Moss / Patrick Stewart
Colin McRae / Chris Hoy

Sir Jackie was kind enough to sign a copy of his book for me.

I'll have to look out for the other two,

That book must be worth something, not that you'd ever want to sell it.

Bergerac signed my autograph book,

My only other motorsport autograph is of John Clelland on a 1992 Knockhill BTCC program.

As I don't have any kids, that I know of, I pass the signed book onto my nephews.

My missus reckons JS is a jumped up little shit with ideas above his station. Apparently he's all too fond of the "Do you know who I am?" line...
