Rover The Long Goodbye
Rover: The Long Goodbye 20 March 2007 BBC Four Documentary which traces the rise and fall of a great British brand. In the days when Britain's car industry was the envy of the world, Rover epitomised everything to which the driver of taste aspired, but in 2005 it reached the end of the road. The film explores how Rover cars went from defining their eras to becoming victims of their times, telling the story behind the key models to the controversial joint ventures with Japanese and Indian manufacturers in later years.

Austin Metro Review (Top Gear 1991)
Quentin Wilson gives a review of the first generation Austin Metro (1980 to 1990 models), pointing out it's short comings, such as the rust issues and the somewhat unreliable Hydragas suspension and the A-Series engine. As a result, these cars are now as rare as hen's teeth. This video is the property of the BBC .





British Motor Corporation Story
BMC was the largest British car company of its day, with (in 1952) 39 percent of British output, producing a wide range of cars under brand names including Austin, Morris, MG, Austin-Healey and Wolseley as well as commercial vehicles and agricultural tractors. The first chairman was Lord Nuffield (William Morris) but he was replaced in August 1952 by Austin's Leonard Lord who continued in that role until his 65th birthday in 1961 but handing over, in theory at least, the managing director responsibilities to his deputy George Harriman in 1956. BMC's headquarters were at the Austin plant at Longbridge, near Birmingham and Austin was the dominant partner in the group mainly because of the chairman. The use of Morris engine designs was dropped within 3 years and all new car designs were coded ADO from "Amalgamated Drawing Office". The Longbridge plant was up to date, having been thoroughly modernised in 1951, and compared very favourably with Nuffield's 16 different and often old fashioned factories scattered over the English Midlands. Austin's management systems however, especially cost control and marketing, were not as good as Nuffield's and as the market changed from a shortage of cars to competition this was to tell. The biggest-selling car, the Mini, was famously analysed by Ford Motor Company who concluded that BMC must be losing £30 on every one sold. The result was that although volumes held up well throughout the BMC era, market share fell as did profitability and hence investment in new models, triggering the 1966 merger with Jaguar Cars to form British Motor Holdings (BMH), and three years later leading to the government sponsored merger of BMH with Leyland Motor Corporation.

THE BEST OF MOTORING IN THE THIRTIES
To buy the DVD go to http://www.motorfilms.com A compilation of classic original travelogues from the Austin and Morris Archives re-mastered for DVD. The 1930s was an era when motoring was still fun. Small cars such as the Austin Seven and the Morris Minor carried a modest price tag and brought motoring within the reach of the middle classes for the first time. They celebrated the freedom this relatively new form of transport gave them by exploring the length and breadth of the British Isles. These charming travelogues, produced by Morris Motors and the Austin Motor Company, were intended to demonstrate the virtues of their products. Along the way they captured a snapshot of Thirties Britain - its scenery, its people, and its way of life. So jump into the passenger seat and take a trip back in time, through the picturesque villages of England, up into the magnificent mountains of Scotland, and past the impressive monuments of Wales.
