A History of British Car Production in Coventry

A very interesting video from the BBC detailing the rise of Motor Car manufacture in and around the city of Coventry in the English midlands. Mainly centred on Standard/Triumph, Jaguar and Riley but Rover does get a few mentions. The centre of Rover production was in Solihull, 14 miles to the west of Coventry.
