A service on my 1970 Morris Minor.
Checking my moggy over before it goes to a show. My first video in HD using
my new panasonic HDC-SD41 camcorder. A simple job, a garage would charge a
small fortune for this kind of job.

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.
