Finnish TV opened up some of their archives on the Net today

http://www.yle.fi/el...&g=3&ag=19&t=29

Video clips from Finnish GP (Eläintarha). Much MC but also car racing. Some longer some shorter and with different quality.

1939, 1948, 1950, 1953, 1954, 1955, 1956, 1958, 1959, 1961, 1962 and 1963 races

Includes at the end a slow "sightseeing" lap at Keimola with Jimmy Clark giving comments.

I didn't have any trouble with the feed (Using 8Mb line). I don't know how it works from abroad or with slower connections.

WOW!!! :clap: :clap:

I've only clicked the second link so far, but I'll wager that's the longest extant piece of footage of Jimmy actually talking!

Thanks Leif - marvellous :clap: :clap: :clap:

Fantastic!!

I've only seen one of the clips so far, but for sure I'll study them all thoroughly when I get back home from work.

Thanks a lot for the links!!

Thankyou Leif.
Fantastic...and good quality too. :up:

Although I don´t understand the Finnish language...I heard the commentator name "Curt Lincoln" (whitch I believe was the father of "Nina"...Jochen Rindts wife)...and also "Bonnier".

And...(Waldemar Stener?) in the 1953 race...in that old Ferrari. ;)

Has anyone got this to work on Mac? My Finnish isn't quite up to scratch, and I think it's telling me I need WMP10.

I've just played a few minutes on Mac, Rich.
It self-played in a browser window in Safari - but took some moments to begin without giving any indication that it was loading or streaming. Note that some are sound-only.
