Bred in the Bone (1958)
This journey through the history of the Land Rover starts with its pedigree as a child of Midlands manufacturing success. In monochrome, we see the centre-steer prototypes and the first production model ‘Huey’. As it becomes an established product it proves invaluable on enterprises such as the Australian Snowy Mountain hydro-electric scheme. Finally, the film dissolves into colour as we are introduced to the exciting new Land Rover Series I1.
