    BBC Four - Timeshift, Series 13, Full Throttle: The Glory Days of British Motorbikes

    Full Throttle: The Glory Days of British Motorbikes

    Not currently available on BBC iPlayer
    Series 13 Episode 1 of 8
    DURATION: 1 HOUR
    Timeshift returns with an exploration of the British love of fast, daring and sometimes reckless motorbike riding during a period when home-grown machines were the envy of the world. From TE Lawrence in the 1920s, to the 'ton up boys' and rockers of the 1950s, motorbikes represented unparalleled style and excitement, as British riders indulged their passion for brands like Brough Superior, Norton and Triumph.

    But it wasn't all thrills and spills - the motorbike played a key role during World War II and it was army surplus bikes that introduced many to the joy and freedom of motorcycling in the 50s, a period now regarded as a golden age. With its obsession with speed and the rocker lifestyle, it attracted more than its fair share of social disapproval and conflict. Narrated by John Hannah.

    Good reminder, especially as I hadn't realised it was a series

    It is a series, but only the first episode was about bikes I think.
