See clips of long lost TV shows and commercials

Join us on Saturday 24 February as we unveil clips of long lost TV shows and commercials from the National Motor Museum Trust's Film and Video Collection.

For over five years Sarah Wyatt and her team of volunteers have been exploring every nook and cranny in the Film and Video Collection and have found undiscovered recordings of long lost TV shows like Drive In, Wheelbase, Motorfair, The Motor Show, Wheels and Wheeltracks.

Join Chris Goffey, long time motoring journalist and Top Gear presenter for over ten years, as he unveils some of these hidden gems. Expect cars, stars and commercials that have not been on our TVs for decades.


The evening will commence at 7.30 pm in the Lecture Theatre of the National Motor Museum’s Collections Centre and finish at around 10.00 pm. The National Motor Museum will be open from 6.00pm for a private viewing at no extra charge. A pay bar will be available in the Collections Centre for the purchase of beers, wines and soft drinks.
