100 years of the TT told in this five-part series by Geoff Cannell, Phil Edge and Terry Cringle, with Matthew Richardson of the Manx Museum.
From its beginnings as a reliability test to its current position as the greatest road race in the world, the TT has had to change and re-invent itself as each generation brings new challenges.
In this specially commissioned 3-volume audio history produced by Manx Radio, producer Roy McMillan utilises nostalgic clips from the Stanley Schofield Sound Stories archive, Manx Radio and private collections to recount a story that is almost the heartbeat of motorcycling itself. Each CD is full of rare bike sounds, carefully researched stories and anecdotes, plus excerpts from commentaries that capture the excitement and drama of famous TT Races in a way that only radio can. And where no archive exists, we've created unique simulations of what a radio commentary would have been like at, for example, the 1922 TT.
