For most people a Grand Prix starts with a green light and ends with a chequered flag, but for the organisers work starts a year in advance.
Tonight William WooUard tells the story of the army of 15,000 that makes it happen. Top Gear spent five days leading up to the British GP looking at the side of motor racing the spectator never sees. William Woollard also reports from the Ml on the unnecessary risks drivers take, and Frank Page tries out an interesting newcomer to the British motoring scene, the Bitter SC two-door coupe.

The Lifer
In 1973 Chris was sentenced to life imprisonment for murder and robbery.
In 1983 he came out on parole, supervised in the community by a probation officer.
A year later he was back serving his life sentence, not because he had killed again, but because of a motoring offence. The film follows his probation officer's fight to keep Chris and his girlfriend going as they wait for the Home Secretary to decide whether he will ever again be released.

A country tale in three parts with Cheryl Campbell 1: The Lie of the Land by JANE BEESON
'Dear Caroline. I don't pretend to understand you.
"A challenge" you say; is that what you call giving up your independence? It seems to me you've chosen to bury yourself on a crumbling hill-farm as a last way out.'
But Caroline's friend had not understood her love for a Devon farmer and the mystery of Dartmoor.
