Format: DVD Verified Purchase
As athletics books and DVDs are very thin on the ground, I saw this as a great chance to view some hard-to-find footage from the 70s, 80s and 90s halcyon days of track and field.

Covering most legendary competitors up to the mid-nineties - including Carl Lewis, Ed Moses, Bob Beamon, Sergei Bubka, Al Oerter and Daley Thompson - there is certainly a lot of ground covered. The only problem is they have tried to fit too much in to the allotted programme time. As a result, some fantastic moments in the featured athlete's histories are cut unforgivably short; most notably, Carl Lewis' dramatic long-jump duel with Mike Powell in the 1991 Tokyo World Championships. That said, the footage within is of very good quality (mainly from the BBC archives, I understand), and there is plenty of extra footage - usually the athlete's best moments uncut (Lewis-Powell contest still not complete here either!)

Steve Cram narrates the DVD and is pretty good at the task; however he probably has a bit too much to say at times. All in all, this would have been far better stretched out over a second DVD, with more featured on each athlete, as well as maybe more interview footage with the athletes themselves. Certainly not a bad purchase, but not the DVD it could have been.
