The cam­era never lies

See

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
