Strange through that the French race on that dvd is in black & white while the British race is in colour.

I don't know if there was more than one historic film on Sky, but the film I saw was about Brands Hatch, and centred on the 1964 Grand Prix. I don't recall any French GP in the film I saw. It was a BP film. Hope this helps.
.............I've now been asked by two different people (one of whom is our esteemed Barry Boor) what film it was that aired today before qualifying on Sky F1 of the 1964 European Grand Prix. Unfortunately I was at work and didn't see it, but I'm thinking it may have been the BP film 'The Time Between' that chronicles both the French and European GP's, duration is 40 minutes. Does anyone know?

Well....................perhaps they only used the European GP/Brands Hatch section of the video ??

I have a VHS video produced by Quadrant Videos in association with Castrol which combines "Brands Hatch Beat 1964" which is film of the 1964 European GP, and a short bit on the supporting saloon car event, and, "Rouen Round 1962" which is coverage of the 1962 French GP. However, as I didn't see what Sky showed I couldn't say if it was one and the same.
Sounds like it. There were some shots of the saloon car race start, featuring lots of Minis, filmed from the top of the newly constructed Grovewood Suite.

On the Rouen Round / Brands Hatch Beat video / DVD, the film of the Brands meeting includes saloons and jazz hence the F1 action is pretty short, probably not more than 10 mins, whilst on The Time Between / European GP 1964, the footage of the GP is much longer - 30 mins plus.
This is from memory mind you . I have both videos somewhere, just not sure where at the moment !

The commentary on the Sky film was but Anthony Marsh - so it was first class.
And it showed me something that I never knew before. Mike Spence, covering for the injured Peter Arundell, had a plain yellow helmet in practice but come race day the yellow and orange design, that he wore from then on, appeared.
