A documentary covering the TT (tourist trophy) motorbike races held at the Isle of Man on public roads, almost every year for the last 100 years. There is a huge amount of footage on this DVD and it will entrance you. A detailed history from the very first 1900's bicycles-with-a-motor-racing-in-muddy-cart-tracks right up to plastic-wrapped airborne crotch rockets of about 2002. The DVD is split by scenes into periods of about a decade which makes finding something you like really easily, though first off you will want to watch it right through. Interviews with champions of almost all eras, a brilliant and fascinating amount of REAL footage from the 1900s and mid-war years, I couldn't believe that much footage has survived, and the old champions get their word in too, to bring a personal touch. It brings to life the old Levis and HRDs and Cottons in a way which will allow you to appreciate the skill of riders from all eras and the difficulty of handling those no-suspension poor-braking wonders. Later on you'll thrill to watch the incredible speeds on better road surfaces and better machines, as these racers get airborne between buildings and trees at 120mph on a circuit which was declared "too dangerous to ride at 60mph"! Film quality is as good as the times allowed, interspersed with good modern footage of interviews with the champs at their clubs, museums, etc. Made in 4:3 standard telly size (not widescreen). A surprisingly long DVD watch, but entertaining all the way through if you are at all a petrol-head or just appreciate people risking their lives for the sake of being the best. Every one of the 220minutes (YES NEARLY 4 HOURS) is a great watch. 4 1/2 stars (out of 5).
