    Great footage.  Smiley

    Interesting to see the "old school" audio/video recording set-up and to be reminded how much stuff like that has progressed, particularly in the last 10-15 years.

    Great video, thank you for sharing this, very unique footage. The D-Type was a very successful car (3 Le Mans wins) . Hawthorn was a good driver and the first UK driver  to win the F1 championship (in 1958) when he was already diagnosed with a serious illness.

    My favorite part was "with our michrophone strapped to his chest"! Didn't anyone think that a few key parts could have been used instead of what looked like a foot tall desktop michrophone. 

    I can only guess that they did not want to borrow parts from an expensive michrophone and then try to re-assemble it and hope that it all worked again. yes

    Oh, and the traffic was certainly part of a very different era.
