An opera in three acts by Leos Janacek, performed at the Chatelet Theatre Musical de Paris and produced by Nicholas Hytner, the director of Miss Saigon and The Madness of King George.

The opera was based on a series of illustrated newspaper articles by a Czech journalist, and Hytner takes his cue from the opera's beginnings, presenting the episodic story in brightly coloured sets and using costumes of rustic simplicity designed by Bob Crowley. It is performed by the Orchestre de Paris, conducted by Charles Mackerras.
Sung in Czech with English subtitles.

Aston Martin's story is one of engineering triumph in the face of financial adversity. In a special profile of the company, Jeremy Clarkson has the chance to drive some of its finest cars, including the post-war Atom, a DB4GT, the DB5 used in the film Goldeneye, a DB6 Volante and the latest V12 DB7.
He tells the story of the company's decade-long struggle to win Le Mans, and talks to Stirling Moss about what the old racing Astons were like to drive.
