    Reducing this clip's current date range, the reporter described Ken Tyrrell as being "47 years old". This helpfully places the year of filming as either 1971 or 1972.

    "East Hawsley" in text and tags should read East Horsley.

    "Tyrrell in old style racing car." - it's a Cooper 500.

    "Shots of the Tyrrell home." - that begins with Tyrrell coming up his driveway in his Ford Cortina Mk III 2000GXL.
