The se­ries is pro­duced by Bri­tish doc­u­men­tary pro­duc­tion com­pany New Black Films and is di­rected by Emmy-nom­i­nated James Ersk­ine. "We’ll raise the veil on the pres­sure that rac­ing cars to the limit puts on the teams and driv­ers, in a unique hu­man-in­ter­est driven se­ries that will take a 360 look at what it takes to par­tic­i­pate, or­gan­ise and ul­ti­mately try and win what is un­ques­tion­ably the tough­est race in mo­tor­sport,” Ersk­ine said. "It’s a great priv­i­lege to bring this to screen with such strong col­lab­o­ra­tors as Ama­zon Prime Video. This is rac­ing as you’ve never seen it be­fore."

The doc­u­men­tary looks to have a bit of ev­ery­thing, from his­tor­i­cal con­text to in-depth con­tem­po­rary in­sight. The usual sus­pects pop up in­clud­ing for­mer Porsche race ace and F1 hot­shoe Mark Webber. Plenty of Porsches from the great race are there to be ap­pre­ci­ated in high def­i­ni­tion de­tail, too. The full se­ries is avail­able now to stream for Ama­zon sub­scribers via Ama­zon Prime Video. Why not get in the en­durance spirit and binge watch the whole thing?

While we're talk­ing Ama­zon Prime, an­other two part doc­u­men­tary fo­cus­ing ex­clu­sively on the Porsche 911 has also popped up on the stream­ing ser­vice. The Porsche 911 Story, as it is known, is a lit­tle clunky in pro­duc­tion terms. But there's oo­dles of 911 footage old and new in the two-part doc­u­men­tary along with some in­ter­est­ing tech­ni­cal tit­bits and nu­mer­ous in­ter­views with own­ers and var­i­ous of­fi­cial Porsche reps. Point your PC, Mac, tablet or HDTV at ama­zon.com and get watch­ing.
