I saw this and it's now in iPlayer: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b0 ... ham_Dream/

Not a lot of Lotus content, but interesting all the same.

Not available in the US.. :cry:

Strange that they use pictures of the Mk 1 Lotus Cortina as we all know it was assembled at Cheshunt (as opposed to the Mk 11 which was assembled in Dagenham)

I spent 4 months working at Dagenham in 1980 in the Engine plant as a management trainee. One of the assignments that I was given was to strip down a 1600 kent engine, measure everything, rebuild it & then have it dyno tested. If it failed dyno I would have to start again...
