Awesome documentary about the deadliest racing incident, the 1955 Le Mans crash of Pierre Levegh.

This weekend the race is run again and this your marks the 50th anniversary of this crash. This is a BBC FOUR documentary about it. It shows in detail what happened using unseen footage and with witnesses telling their tale .
