The 'Blue Bird' and a Film of the Utah Record

Sir Malcolm Campbell can claim to have travelled on land faster than any other man. In 1935 he drove 'Blue Bird' at a speed of 301 miles an hour, the world's record, which still stands. At the beginning of this broadcast viewers will see this record-breaking car, and Sir Malcolm Campbell, in an interview with Cecil Lewis, will describe some of its unusual features. He will end the broadcast by giving a commentary on films of his own record-breaking achievements, including his last success with 'Blue Bird' at Bonneville Flats in Utah.
