For my tastes, the older footage of Moss, Ascari, Hawthorne, et al is most fascinating. Things certainly were more elemental in the olden days, what with the cotton shirts, leather polo helmets and the uncertainty of certain death which was such a fact of life. The Nuerburgring footage also is fascinating. Too bad all of the "good old" tracks-even Spa-Francorchamps have been blandified to erradicated, Hermann Tilke is doing nothing for art's sake.
Finally, there are a couple of scenes from 1978 which pretty much made my purchase: Patrick Depailler at Long Beach in his little shoebox Tyrrell and Jacques Lafitte at Mighty Monza in his Ligier Matra, the best sounding racecars ever, EVER! Memories of the need for earplugs trackside at F-1 venues! You sure don't need those anymore.
Reason for 3 star rating, more on-board race/qualifying footage from the early years of F1 and less filler at the end.
There is an optional track commentary but its worth watching the DVD just for the sounds of the cars as it gives you a feeling of what it was really like to drive.
The one downside for me is that it ended all too fast, once you really start to get into it it seems to be over.
All in all a great DVD!
