Product Description
"Puts you back on the Island and behind the scenes, a must for TT fans." R Little, Co. Down The TT is the world's most famous motorcycle race, renowned since 1907 as the ultimate test of man and machine. For the thousands of fans who travel to the Isle of Man each year it is a pilgrimage to the shrine of motorcycling. This documentary captures the spirit and character that surrounds the festival through the eyes of those involved in it. Through director Andy Stickland's candid approach, the real TT is seen on film for perhaps the first time. It reveals the emotions, fears and thrills throughout the fortnight that go hand-in-hand with the excitement of the racing. It offers an all-access pass to the pit lane tensions, and gives an angle to the TT that is seldom, if ever, seen by the spectator. Interviews with the riders, spectators and officials deliver a very honest commentary, supported by the actual Radio TT broadcasts from the 2003 festival. This is the closest you'll get to the unmistakable experience of a TT fortnight without crossing 70 miles of Irish Sea. The TT has been crying out for a film to be made about it that captures the magic of the event, that explains why so many of the greatest racers in the world have been drawn to the Island despite its dangers and why so many fans make their annual pilgrimage to the festival. Well here it is! The inside story; a celebration; an understanding. This is TT - a film documentary. Featuring the music of Coldplay, Oasis, Slade, Brian May and more.

    2Wish I had not bought this.
    By Paul
    Disappointed. The DVD is 83 minutes long with only about 15-20 minutes worth of good video and information. The rest is filler, put together in a hodge-podge fashion. Minimal history about the race, very little racing footage (past or present), too many people standing in front of a camera and rambling on and on. A whole lot of talking but very little actually being said, and too many shots of irrelevant scenes. Its obvious the producer did not have a clear idea of what he wanted to record. I ended up "fast forwarding" a significant portion of the DVD. I have seen better TT documentaries for free on YouTube.

    4Isle of Man TT Documentary
    By Motodio
    I'm an avid motorcycle rider/restorer and have watched several TT races. I was hoping the DVD would contain more of the historical racing at the Isle but there was actually very little coverage at that level. Most of the coverage however was on the 2003 races (if I remember correctly) but it was well done. I also would like to have seen more coverage on the different classes, like classes below the 600cc classs as I believe there are antique races and 125cc races and probably others. There was some sidecare coverage however. Most coverage was on the 600cc and the Senior TT (open class).

    I would however purchase the DVD again as it's worth seeing and adding to one's motorcyle video collection.
