James Hunt and Murray Walker sit down with Chris Serle for a great interview about life, Formula 1 and their commentating partnership in this 1988 episode of Windmill.

Windmill was a BBC series which ran for a few years in the mid-1980s and made use of archival footage plucked from the BBC’s Windmill Road archives.

This episode, one from the closing weeks of the show, aired on the 10th of January 1988. Its theme was ‘Cars’ and it brought Formula 1 commentating duo James Hunt and Murray Walker in for an interview with host Chris Serle. They chat about the pair’s careers, significant moments in Formula 1 and its coverage, Walker and Hunt’s commentating partnership and more alongside some classic clips.

It’s always good to see Hunt and Walker together, and this is an enjoyable watch. Just don’t look too hard at Serle’s sweater!
