BBC footage;Motor Racing; the Race of Champions 1974?

Post by Gary C »

Lads, I wonder if anyone can help me. I've been asked by a third party to help locate some footage, IF it exists, that is. It's motor racing footage, the Race Of Champions back in 1974. Now, I'm think the BBC MAY have covered this.............is there any way to interrogate (from outside) the BBC Library in any way? I've asked a mate who is still staff (I left in 1989) and even he can't access the library database these days! The race was at Brands Hatch in Kent on the 16th of March 1974. Any help gratefully received, thanks.

Not forgetting that Thames TV had a weekly long running motoring series called 'Drive In' hosted by Shaw Taylor,Tony Bastable and John Anthony.
they did sometimes cover sporting events.
