Gordon Wilkins covers the world of motoring with Michael Frostick.
Porsche were sports car champions of the world in 1969, winning the Targa Florio and the 1,000 kilometre events at Spa and Monza. They also came first in the Monte Carlo Rally and the Acropolis Rally, and the new Porsche 917 achieved a speed of nearly 240 miles an hour at Le Mans. What explains the success of this small Stuttgart firm in rallying and racing?
Extensive use of light alloys and a high performance engine over the rear driving wheels give the Porsche excellent speed and road-holding - Dr Ferdinand Porsche also designed the first Volkswagen â€“ but the car is expensive and not without its critics.
A profile of a world-famous British painter filmed on the occasion of Sutherland's Munich Exhibition
Graham Sutherland talks to his friend, the Italian writer Giorgio Soavi
'I would like to have been born in the Renaissance, one did not have to go through the double action of working and presenting oneself for publicity.'
' Why should I struggle to explain? Why should I have to bruise the chancy sensations of the process of the creative art of painting? It is all as impossible as explaining the smell of leaves or the smell of a rose ..."
Happily Graham Sutherland has overcome a good many of the difficulties of the creative artist when talking about his art. He talks with candour and self-knowledge about his work at a lively press conference in Munich and to Giorgio Soavi in his own surroundings.
The paintings and drawings, filmed in Wales, England, Germany and France, as well as the places and themes Sutherland dwells on, illuminate the words of a remarkable man and artist.
