Grand Prix - the Killer Years A BBC documentary on how rapidly evolving technology and an indifference to driver safety on the part of car designers and track owners caused ever-escalating casualties among the top-tier drivers of the '60s and '70s, and the efforts of the drivers to introduce modern safety standards and rules. The footage is in places exhilarating, capturing the beauty and the excitement of the sport at its best, and in others horrifying and tragic, the sport at its worst.

Fire Marshall killed
at Italian Grand Prix.
I hope the banked track at the new Indianapolis track doesn't kill anyone. Formula
One has never raced on a banked surface before.
