Fire up the Ford Capri!
Enjoyed the BBC's Ford's Dagenham Dream after watching the film Made In Dagenham on Saturday. It's still available to watch on iPlayer via the link. Biggest revelation was that the makers of The Sweeney were given free Ford cars to use on the condition that Regan and Carter drove Ford Capris and the old lags and toe rags all drove beaten-up Jags. And if they left the door of their motor open while propping open their mincers with a pair of matchsticks? Shut it!
