Back in 2005, a number of great documentaries lamenting the end of MG Rover appeared on TV. I rather liked this one, which featured on BBC4, and a highlight of which is the laconic voiceover by the wonderful Geoffrey Palmer – that might be because it was nicely produced, featured all the right people and relied on a certain Keith Adams for the research and fact-checking.
Anyway, if you have a spare 40 minutes or so, it’s very much worth watching – even if it all feels a little like ancient history now…
