Sky Documentaries

For those who have Sky in the UK, a number of interesting documentaries have appeared on the 'Sky Documentaries' channel.

I can recommend the documentary about Elizabeth Holmes and Theranos, the Wirecard scandal, and with particular relevance to this board 'Framing John Delorean'

I am afraid our hero Colin doesn't come out too well from it.

Speaking of documentaries about cars, I was really impressed by this one. The title is 'The Cannonball Run Countach,' but it's about so much more than just that one car, but that one car ties it all together. To me, The Cannonball Run -both real and fictionalised- represents the ultimate expression of the zeitgeist of what many regard as the golden age of car-culture, and the end of that golden age.
