In An MG is Born, Mark Evans' tenth workshop-based TV series for Discovery Real Time, follow the world's best-loved amateur mechanic as he strips an MGB Roadster down to every last nut and bolt and, over 2000 hours, painstakingly rebuilds it from the ground up. An MG Is Born is a unique piece of MG history - the first TV documentary of its kind dedicated to the MGB - and almost certainly the last.
A fantastic reference tool for existing, or would-be MGB restorers, and a unique piece of motoring memorabilia for all MG enthusiasts, this new DVD is a unique and detailed insight into the engineering, design and restoration of one of the worlds' most popular and well-know sports cars.

As well as the restoration project itself (all filmed in Mark's own workshop), the DVD also includes behind-the-scenes footage filmed at a specialist engine workshop, the body shell production line at the British Motor Heritage Factory and the overdrive and prop shaft production facility at GKN Driveline.
The Photo DVD-ROM contains over 1,300 of Mark's workshop photographs covering the restoration of his MGB from start to finish. This is a fantastic resource for anyone restoring or contemplating restoring an MGB and is only wavailable from markevans.co.uk.

MG - The Legend is an interesting and informative DVD filmed over 10 years covering the story of the MG marque, mainly through the eyes of the enthusiasts themselves, from early vintage models up to the current new MG Saloons.
The programme is Produced and Directed by former Top Gear Director and TV Producer/Motoring journalist Jamie Langton and features some unusual cars. One owner shows us his 1980 built MGBGT thatís never been on the road, with just 58 miles on the clock the car has not even been registered and looks as though itís fresh from the factory. Also featured is some exclusive production line footage of the early nineties classic MGRV8 being built which is brought up to date with footage of the current saloons rolling off the production line.
Exclusive interviews include Don Hayter, chief body draughtsman for the MGB and we also get to see his one off MGB V8 Roadster built specially for him by British Leyland at the end of MGBís production. Thereís also an interview with David Bishop, Managing Director of British Motor Heritage Ltd who tells us how he saved the tooling of the MGB from being scrapped, and how, thanks to him and his team, the MG RV8 came about. Also included are interviews with MG owners from the Classic Car Club of Orlando, Florida, in the USA.
In Wheeler Dealers the challenge is to save a variety of classic cars from the scrap yard. In this episode auto veteran Mike Brewer joins forces with mechanic mate Edd China with only £2,000 and one week to restore a MGB GT. A sure treat for retro car lovers everywhere.

While finding the car the renovate Mike offers plenty of useful and general tips on how to select the perfect second-hand motor.
Working from a dedicated garage base, acclaimed moto specialist Edd China makes his initial assessment of the car, leaving Mike to decide what to spend the £2,000 on and how best to get the motor back on the road and zipping down the motorway.
