Anyone catch the programme on BBC3 or 4 tonight - a tribute to Jim Clark...
Not only packed with reminiscences about his Indi win and his F1 championships, but also clips from his driving - basically just about anything with wheels.
What came over most of all was the genuine affection that everyone had for the man - his humility, his generosity, and his ability caused him to stand out. A trully humble and desrving world champion - probably the last of a breed that doesn't exist any more.
Hi Danimik. :-))))
I would have loved to watch that one even me not being British. :-(( It seems he was great by what you are saying and what I have read about him. Unfortunately I don’t get BBC3. :-(((
On another note…. Don’t you think the heading of this tread is a bit discriminating sweetie?? :-((
Sorry, but for someone like you that is always talking about racism and discrimination, and that I’m always learning from… it isn’t fitting you! :-)))) I think you could have done way better this time.
Jim Clark is not just appreciated and hade British fans, but all over the world. Please don’t get made at me, but I just couldn’t resist. xxx
Jim Clark just for “For British Fans”??? wuaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

No, I'm sure he just meant that BBC iPlayer is just for British viewers. I'm always wanting to get friends to see the interesting documentaries they have on BBC4, but many of them live overseas and can't get access.
when i posted it, I thought someone would pick me up on it - bearing in mind what I have said in the past. You'll note though that is an entirely appropriate use of the nationality as the tv programme in question is a BBC programme, and takes into account of the programme's probable limited availability.
And what's this iPlayer thing you're all on about? I'm too old for such things. Why, even my iPod confuses me...

I am sure that BBC iPlayer is available on the internet, through the BBC website.
It is well worth seeing. There is lots of archive racing footage.
It was good to see John Surtees, Graham Hill, Jackie Stewart, Colin Chapman and Dan Gurney among others.
Dan Gurney was an american F1 driver from the old days.
John Surtees was a champion on two wheels and four.
And there is film of Jim Clark driving a Ford Cortina on three wheels!
I plan to watch it on iplayer, Danimik.
I am old enough to remember those times.
And of course, he is Scottish, not English.
The English often claim Britishness for Scottish success.
BTW, I am English, but I try to tell the truth :)
And I hope that I have a sense of humour and fun.
