Jeremy Irons Hosts ‘Racing Legends – Graham Hill’ for BBC2

From the BBC Two Website:

Graham Hill
Racing Legends, Series 2 Episode 2 of 3

Jeremy Irons examines the life of one of his heroes, motor racing champion Graham Hill – and drives the cars that are part of the Hill legend. Irons tells the story of how Hill rose to the top of his sport and also became a hugely popular and charismatic public figure. Along the way, Irons meets members of Hill’s family, close friends and rivals -and gets a driving master class from Hill’s son Damon.

Packed with rare archive and home-movie footage, the programme gives an intimate and enthralling portrait of a complex man who lived life at full-throttle, in an era when death and injury were an ever-present danger.
