"Evocative" Classic and Sports Car

"A worthy candidate for any DVD library" Motorsport

"Cracking footage......best bit, though, is the bonus Time Between film" Octane

"It's a gem!" Autosport

Experience the life a Formula One driver on and off the track in two remarkable 1964 films from the BP archive.

We begin with Time Between, an extraordinary glimpse into the lives of four of the greatest racers of their generation away from the track. The fly-on-the-wall documentary follows Graham Hill, Bruce McLaren, Innes Ireland and Mike Hailwood for 13 days from the end of the 1964 French Grand Prix at Rouen to the start of the British GP at Brands Hatch. Rare black-and-white footage shows these four greats away from the track, attending business meetings, pursuing their own interests and even filling the downtime between races with some more racing!

McLaren works on his cars, Ireland tours the highlands in an off-road vehicle, Hill travels back to France for a hair-raising GT race while Mike ‘The Bike’ goes back to his first love and competes at the Belgian motorcycle Grand Prix – and wins! The incredible on-board footage of Hailwood riding the MV Agusta is simply stunning.

In European Grand Prix 1964 we are treated to all the action from the fabulous July race meeting at the Brands Hatch circuit. Although designated the European GP, this was also the British Grand Prix, and exceptional colour footage brings us action from practice and the thrilling race itself.

The line-up of drivers reads like a who’s who of Grand Prix legends - Jim Clark, Graham Hill, John Surtees, Jack Brabham, Dan Gurney and more. Wonderful camerawork shows the close dices throughout the field and the tremendous battle between Clark’s Lotus-Climax and the BRM of Hill for victory. In addition, Hill gives us a fascinating insight into the preparations of driver and team as we eavesdrop on a briefing between he and BRM’s Tony Rudd.

"Two BP films from 1964 are matched for this evocative Duke release. The first is a black-and-white documentary about drivers Graham Hill, Innes Ireland, Bruce McLaren and Mike Hailwood, the second focuses on the big day ay Brands with colour footage of Hill's dice with Jim Clark" Classic and Sports Car

"This two-part DVD provides a fascinating window into 1960s Grand Prix racing. It was a time when motor racing was more relaxed, less commercial and, to many, more fun. The first part - Time Between - covers the period between the French Grand Prix at Rouen and the British (and European) Grand Prix at Brands Hatch in 1964. The footage follows Graham Hill to Reims for the 12-hour GT race, Bruce McLaren back to Cooper's factory, Mike Hailwood to Francorchamps for a 'bike race and Innes Ireland returning home to catch trout and drive his caterpillar vehicle. This DVD is worth buying for the on-board footage of Hailwood at Spa-Francorchamps alone, not to mention hearing his arguments as to why motorcycle racing was safer than Grand Prix racing. The colour footage of the 1964 British Grand Prix itself in the second part is bolstered by plenty of footage from before and after the race, and the result is a worthy candidate for any DVD library" Motorsport

"Cracking footage of the '64 F1 round at Brands Hatch. The commentary for this BP-sponsored film talks up the venue's new toilet block and and the ability to 'drink outside like the continentals' in the preamble. Best bit, though, is the bonus Time Between film, which shows what drivers got up to between the French Grand Prix and their visit to the Kent circuit: race mostly, with Mike Hailwood returning to two wheels in Belgium. The on-bike footage is extraordinary" Octane

"Great colour footage of the first world championship GP at Brands Hatch, taken from the BP video library. The real hook, though, is the fascinating bonus film 'Time Between' - a fly-on-the-wall documentary following Graham Hill, Bruce McLaren, Innes Ireland and Mike Hailwood away from F1. It's a gem!"Autosport
