Do not raise our spirits, Craig Doyle and Natalie Pinkham - this sounds just like ITV's previous Goodwood offering. No doubt half of the programme will be devoted to fashion and the rest interviewing C and D list 'celebrities'.

By the way, this does not warrant a new topic heading - can easily be accommodated within the goodwood 2009 revival topic.

I think Craig Doyle is the one who advetises some double glazing and Natalie Pinkham is ITVs mandatory airhead blonde they send to motor sport events

Much better than nothing - why not watch "Masterchef" or "Who wants to be a millionaire" if it annoys so much?!

It is designed for the general public not chassis number buffs like myself and a lot of other TNFers

Like Condor, I shall also look forward to the programme

Is Murray Walker commentating this year?
They normally have at least some racing action, which is worth seeing again. I'm hoping the Mini St Mary's Trophy will be shown, because they don't normally show much of the saloons.

Errr - Ms Pinkham didn't strike me as being blonde. Pleasant bird, actually... Race commentary is led by the ear-splittingly turbocharged David Croft with expert support from Simon Taylor - listen out for "the German driver Von Schuppan" and "the old guy's retaken the lead" (D. Walker in the Junior race) - otherwise ITV4 on Tuesday, 29 September, at 20:00hrs as above - 1 hour which means 47mins plus commercials -
The programme will be shown again on the following dates:

ITV1 – Thursday 1 October at 01:30hrs (repeat)
ITV4 – Saturday 3 October at 15:00hrs (repeat)

Should be REALLY exciting.

Absolutely. The most spectacular drive in a 250F i've seen for years! Sensational four wheel drifts through Madgwick.

That's the way we should look at it, TV economics mean that everything has to be made to appeal to the widest possible audience, hence the non-expert presenters etc, and I bet they manage to fit in every single crash they filmed. It's disappointing for purists like us, but looking at it realistically, we're lucky to get anything at all, and at least Bruce Forsyth isn't presenting it.

On a completely different media tack, I have to share this one with you Scanning a newspaper website this morning, a headline caught my eye "Fiona Bruce as a cowgirl...". It was about some TV charity event, so of course, it didn't mean quite what I hoped it might, but we all have our fantasies...

A photo anyway David, of Frank giving the 250F a good workout, taken by Richard Styles. Dickie Attwood was giving it his all in the Dino too in this superb race.

Just compare the "body language" of the 2 cars, the tyre angles etc. Takes you back to the halcyon days of Charles Lucas/Neil Corner/Willie Green/Pat Lindsay et al in the Lloyds and Scottish in the early 70s.

Thanks for the heads up - its on air much sooner than previous years. Of course there is the background stuff but the racing is always good and should keep me going till the 2009 Goodwood Revival DVD is available.

Even if I was a dog I still would not be watching mind freezing televison programmes such as 'Millionaire' or 'Masterchef' as previously suggested on this topic!

If you care to take a look at my 'introduce yourself' entry of January 21st January 2009 all will be revealed. And, if you look at the 'out yourself' topic entry for 16th April 2009 you will see why I chose my member name. She was a fabulous creature, sadly she died at the end of June and I still cannot get over the loss.

As for whether I have heard of those programmes, of course the answer is yes. Do I watch them, NO.

Craig Doyle also compered ITV4's week long coverage of the IOM TT this year and wasn't too bad to be fair.

:up: Thanks for the reminder - just going to set the recorder as I head out for a theatrical performance in the only extant WWII garrison theatre in the UK still in regular use. Nostalgia of a different kind.

And one can get to it (conveniently) only by boat.

Any guesses, anyone?

Er...I thought it was OK. I thought of it as a 'glimpse' of the Revival and will wait til the 'real thing' is released towards Christmas ; the DVD.
And I loved the fact that the end voiceover was run over the end piece by the two presenters so you couldn't hear what either was saying - brilliant!

Bang on. And I know this is way off topic - but if any of you are in the New Forest area and get the chance to go and see the Forest Forge production of Phineas Fogg Around the World in 80 Days (with a cast of no fewer than three!) GO AND SEE IT! brilliant.


Now... lI shall get back to the thread and read some reviews on the Revival show.

I liked Buzz's reply to the interviewer when asked what he thought when he gazed up at the moon sitting outside on a nice evening with a beer in his hand.

"Been there, done that", he said. :up:

Some nice coverage, good to have it so soon after.

Not too sure what's going on with Freeview at the moment, I thought it was from noon tomorrow that we all had to re-tune our TV sets & Freeview boxes, but my TV was quite unable to find ITV4, I wasted the first five minutes after 20.00 stabbing increasingly desperately at the remote, but to no avail, no ITV4, and no Goodwood. Eventually I gave in to wifely pressure and allowed her to watch naked overweight wobbly women with Gok Wan. Strangely though, although my TV couldn't find the channel, the DVD recorder had no such problem. I didn't dare to hope, but just after the programme ended at 21.00, I tried the DVD recorder and found it had recorded everything perfectly, so I saw the whole programme, but a whole hour after the rest of you. "How queer!" as that legendary comic Tommy Cockles might have said.

I enjoyed it.

They had the same problem they have every year. Do they cover the event (fancy dress, tableaux, aircraft) or the racing? So they try and do both. They would do better to do two shows - One on the happening and one on the racing.

It's a shame that the coverage always focuses on the 'main' races. Personally I'd like to see more of the Formula Juniors, the small sports cars, the early fifties sports cars etc. rather than the E-Types vs GTOs, 250F's vs Dinos and GT40's vs Lola T70's.

Well, it was better than I thought it would be. However, too much time devoted to Minis given the Revival's extensive range of events and that the programme was only about 50 minutes long. Nice to hear Simon Taylor on the racing commentary.

Never mind its only once in 50 yrs, Minis dont really get a look in otherwise, as the owner of a '65 Mini Minor I was proud as punch at the coverage.

I thought that the coverage of the Mini race was very well edited and kept the viewer's interest throughout.

Best quote just piping Stirling's rather incredulous take on the Renault situation.

Agreed. Mind you Goodwood does have the big advantage of being a proper racing circuit rather than an extended version of a mulitistory car park!

As for the overal coverage I would say 7 out of 10. All they need to do for future events is drop the dopy bird and get some smart young lady in who actually knows what a motor car is!

It was good that they gave a precis of each race and the winner............except, unless I blinked, the Glover Trophy was omitted. :confused:

As the "feature" race (and the one with the most recognisable drivers; ex-F1, Indy, etc.), the TT has always had the most coverage in the TV programmes. When they used to show much of the Sunday live on TV in the south, the whole race was sometimes shown.

It's a bit like the ' "Grand Prix": the out-takes' thread - they must have had the cameras running all weekend, as they showed a flash of the white DB3S going through the polystyrene at the chicane which was on Friday IIRC; so there are hours of unseen footage, which we will have to buy the DVD to see just some of ........

it it possible, to get a copy from this ITV report anywhere.
i can not get this programme in germany, but would like to see it , as i was first time at this event and was blown away by this perfect organisation and the best event, i have ever visited.

For the best interviews and action over the weekend, don’t forget to watch on ITV4 Tuesday, 29th September, at 20:00hrs. If you think you might be out, then Sky+ it or record to view at your leisure!

For those unable to do either, the programme will be shown again on the following dates:

ITV1 – Thursday 1October at 01:30hrs (repeat)

ITV4 – Saturday 3 October at 15:00hrs (repeat)
