These unique films are from the BP Video Library, and this DVD is part of a series of releases from this extensive archive. Each title stands alone, but many enthusiasts will wish to collect the entire BP Video Library collection.
Each film charts a different era, with footage shot inside leading motoring museums around the world combined with wonderful colour film of the most significant, and earliest, models in automobile history - back in action against town, village and countryside backdrops rather than behind the velvet ropes of static displays.
From the 1800s on, the films feature legendary names including Daimler, Benz, Peugeot, Renault, Rolls Royce, Fiat, Ford, Bugatti and Alfa Romeo, and the amazing story of the development of motoring during times of war, economic depression and social change.
The DVD is filled with startling facts, including the revelation that speed traps are nothing new, and that militant opposition to traffic policing in the early 1900s gave us one of our most revered motoring organisations! Plus, viewers find out if it can really be true that the first car to reach 100kph was powered by electricity.
