Grand Prix · The Killer Years #2# Extended interviews from the BBC film

by John L. Matthews

John Matthews, the co-director and producer of the original film and editor of the book says: "when we made 'Killer Years', most of the amazing interviews had to be left out, which I found very frustrating. When you make a film you only end up using about 3% of the material, the rest ends up on the cutting room floor. It's hard to decide what to keep. So here we share with you pretty much all of the interviews as they were said. There is hardly if any editing at all. What we have here is a record, an important part of sport history, recorded forever."

This book is a collection of the original interview transcripts, taken directly from the Bigger Picture film tapes. From World Champion Emerson Fittipaldi crying in the car park, to Sir Jackie Stewart and Jackie Oliver narrowly avoiding death, the interviews offer a candid insight into the time when a driver being killed in a Grand Prix had become normal.

Featuring many famous drivers including three World Champions, Emerson Fittipaldi, Sir Jackie Stewart OBE, John Surtees OBE, this fascinating book is a perfect addition to any collection and a must read for anyone who has seen the film or loves Grand Prix.
