The second series of Racing Legends begins tonight on BBC Two. The first series aired during December 2012 and January 2013 (see here and here), profiling Sir Stirling Moss, Sir Jackie Stewart and Colin McRae.
Series 2 features Vic Reeves telling the story of motorcycling legend Barry Sheene. Sheene’s episode airs tonight at 21:05 on BBC Two. Episodes 2 and 3 have no transmission date as of writing, but feature Jeremy Irons profiling Graham Hill and Paul Hollywood meeting John Surtees.
I’ll update this post as and when scheduling details for the final two episodes are confirmed.
Update on December 30th – Episodes 2 and 3 have been brought forward it appears, with episode two airing on Sunday 4th January at 21:00 on BBC Two. The reason for this is that the original programme set to air in that slot, Reinventing the Royals, has been pulled for legal reasons.
