Really enjoyed it, if only for the footage and the interviews.
I thought that the program did highlight that crowd control was appalling in the latin stages, although its pretty clear to see just by watching the footage.
One issue I did have was that it was left to Walter Rohl to explain why it was that Bettega would never have survived that crash. Couldnt the narrator (whose the other negative, with their monotone voice) have explained that the 037′s ability to withstand a frontal impact was onpar to the strenght of tissue paper? Oh, and the title is plain stupid. Group B was both Rallyings Golden years and its darkest hour but Id say that rallying in general is madness and takes special kind of driver to compete in it regardless of the decade.
Which brings me swiftly on, to the drivers. I firmly believe that Rally drivers, more so those of the Group B era, are bloody supermen. I cant think of anything more dangerous and nerve-breaking, then what they did. Knowing that a mistake at the speeds they could do, would likely seriously injure you or the equally brave/stupid fans that lined the roads. What happened in Portugal was an inevitability, whether it was Santos that hit them or not, somebody was going to at some point in time. Im not going to bother with that idiot blaming the driver.
In short, enjoyed it and would watch again.
And theres no documentry in the world that can make Jean-Marie Balestre look good, is there?!
