Isle of Man TT 1973 'Race of the Power Bikes' Hammer Dokumentation
Documentary film originally made for the BBC by award winning filmmaker, Paul Watson, following two motorcycle racers competing at the 1973 Isle of Man TT. One rider is the professional works rider, Peter Williams, and the other is amateur, Graham Bentman.
Paul Watson is one of the great observational documentarians and who has been attributed with being the 'father of reality TV'. This is one of earliest films. I am sorry the quality is not that great but it the only copy in existence... as far as I know.
Peter Williams is my father. This copy is made from a video believed to have been from Dave Croxford, Peter's team mate, who I think is wonderful in this film.
I had a very pleasant lunch with Paul Watson a few years back and he hadn't seen this since it was broadcast. I was glad to be able to get him a copy.
I hope you enjoy it. It's the best documentary about motorcycle racing that I have seen.
