The camera never lies
for yourself how the final hours of the 1976 Bathurst 1000 played out and the signals the HDT gave Colin Bond (see separate story). The DVD includes five hours of race vision from the Seven Sport archives. The cameras kept filming during the ad breaks, too, so there’s never-before-seen material – although an hour around lunchtime is missing [ED: In Sydney, at least, the telecast was interrupted so the Rex Mossop-fronted Controversy Corner could air, wrapping-up the previous weekend’s Manly vs Eels rugby league Grand Final]. Available for $30 from www.cmsmotorsport.com.au
