TV icon and vintage machine enthusiast, Chris Barrie, serves up a big dose of nostalgia in this exclusive new series celebrating British design. From the Spitfire to the Mini Cooper, Chris salutes over fifty years of world-beating British know how, revealing how these mechanical icons helped shape Britain and changed peoples’ lives in the process.
