Winner of three motor racing Formula One World Championships and 27 Grand Prix, the black cap and sideburns of The Flying Scot remain an unmistakable image of awesome speed, 70s glamour and charisma.
The Flying Scot ventures further than the average sports personality profile, providing a comprehensive insight into the triumph and tragedy that has followed this Scotsman both professionally and privately. Contributions are made by an outstanding collection of motor sports finest including Niki Lauda, Emerson Fittipaldi, Murray Walker and Edsel Ford as well as an interview and TV appearance of Stewarts mentor and Formula One legend, the late Ken Tyrrell, without whom Jackies career would have taken a very different turn.
The programme is produced by Mark Stewart, Jackies youngest son who had unique access to family photographs, home movies and Lady Stewarts scrapbooks covering her husbands entire 99 Grand Prix career. Jackies remarkable story is told by those who know him best, interwoven with extensive and rare archive footage.
