    This film features the experimental "Twini Moke", the twin-engined version of the famous Mini Moke.

    The location of filming is the BMC plant at Longbridge.

    As well as Alec Issigonis, also seen in the car is Jack Daniels, the draughtsman and engineer who helped make Issigonis's vehicle designs a reality.
