Was looking forward to this programme yesterday evening, the third episode in the series after Bentley and Aston Martin.

A great disappointment, because the editors made full use of the modern practice of flickering 1 second scenes.
By the time you see a picture, it had changed to the next picture. They also kept repeating scenes, which had been shown earlier.

Pity, because it could have been an interesting film. Switched off after about 15 minutes.

Did any of you feel the same?

The thing which struck me about the Morgan programme was how enthusiastic and proud of the product the employees all seemed to be. I actually quite enjoyed it and the “flickering” didn’t bother me.

Having owned two new traditional Morgans and been around the factory several times you can always see something new.

This "new" Plus 6 is chalk and cheese from my last Plus 4.

Fascinating programme.

Was interesting to see an unusual Morgan on edge of one shot - bit of digging and it appears to be the SP1 - I wonder if it was in for work for owned by Morgan now?

The "flickering" bothered me and I agree the programme was spoilt by this irritating trendy photography technique .... I feel the director could not differentiate between what was incidental and what was interesting to people with a bit more knowledge/interest.

A similar horrible trait in programmes is when everything is close up so none of the shots can breathe and perspective is lost but the director feels, I am sure, he/she has been oh so arty.

Then there is the dumbing down of TV , so everything has to be repeated a number of times even what has just been said .

I love classic car magazines because they are just so much more interesting and in depth.

Was a great episode. So nice to see something hand built so beautifully by staff who take great pride in their work.

The whole series so far has been enjoyable, I’m hoping there is an episode at the lotus factory.
