TV and Motor Racing
Having read the correspondence in recent issues of Motor Sport concerning the televising of motor racing, I was interested to see what sort of a job the BBC would make of Le Mans.
Two programmes were set aside for recorded reports and the finish was to be shown during the cricketers’ break for tea. This looked too good to be true, apart from the fact that it was only to be shown on BBC-2.
Sure enough, the actual finish was not even shown, but cut off, barely a minute short, a typical BBC trick. Surely we motor racing enthusiasts must get together, as suggested by Mr. Fox, and tell the BBC and ITV just how to televise a motor racing event.
Thank you for a magazine that covers the sport superbly.
