Recently saw a historic episode of Automobiles on the History Channel and it was quite interesting. A little footage of Nuvolari winning in Germany and Hitler's response (the marching band pretended not to know the Italian national anthem, but someone provided a record of it!!).
It was divided into 4 segments. First was English cars, focus was primarily on sports cars so MG and Jags were highlighted. Next, German cars, focusing on Mercedes, Porsche, and VW (thankfully, not even a mention of BMW!!!). Third, were the Italians. Highlighted were the pre and post war Alfas, 1900's, Giuliettas, and spiders. Also Lambo and Ferrari (they mentioned the story of Lambo originating because Lambo was a dissatisfied Ferrari owner, but they still considered Ferrari the creme de la creme. Also mentioned Enzo's origins in Alfa). And finally, the North American influence featuring the Vette primarily. Nice show, wondering if anyone else saw it?

It was the weekly airing of Automobiles on the History Channel. Usually this program is focused on one marque, ie- the Packard, etc. Perhaps this was called History of the Automobile. Of course, to grapple with such a subject in a 50 minute program is quite an undertaking, however, it did a nice job of scratching the surface. Wish I could be of further assistance.
