Cliff Michelmore covers the world of motoring with MICHAEL FROSTICK and BARRIE GILL In the last programme of the present series the Wheelbase team visit a new oil refinery at Milford Haven to report on petrol prospects for Britain's 15 million motorists in 1974. Toy earth-movers and dumper-trucks often make good gifts for children at Christmas. The programme tonight calls on a British Leyland factory at Grantham which has been manufacturing 60-ton versions of ' the real thing ' for nearly a century.
At the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu, Stirling Moss comments on a new exhibition of 500 cc racing cars which set the rear-engine style on the Grand Prix circuits of the world.
