5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of historical context 25 Jun 2013
By Nedra
Format:DVD
This documentary definitely has a strong point of view, and offers an informative and fascinating overview of the first 100 editions of the Tour. More than just facts, it tells the story of the Tour as an idea and a living entity. Even my boyfriend, who suffers through my Tour obsession every July, was sucked in.

5.0 out of 5 stars Probably the best DVD I have seen on The Tour. 5 Nov 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I could not believe how good this DVD was especially for the price. Although each year is covered in a few minutes it is well done,and keeps you interested.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic 19 July 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
A great watch and most informative, this can be a reference DVD for the Tour. They should do an update about every 5 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars worth buying 3 Dec 2013
By Albert
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The colour that's been added to the old film sounds naff but works very well. It makes the pictures much more real and interesting. Well worth the money and a few viewings too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Gift 3 Dec 2013
By LS83
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Bought this for my grandads birthday as he loves cycling and the tour do france. I thought the dvd would be better than book and i was proofed right. My grandad was really pleased with his gift and since his neck was hurting he was able to watch it rather than read bout it. He thought it was a very good dvd.

This was much better than expected. There are some great film clips from the early years of cycling. As a gift for a true cycling enthusiast this proved to be much appreciated.
