The late, great Barry Sheene is the subject of the first of a new series of Racing Legends which starts on Sunday evening straight after the second part of the Top Gear Christmas special.

Presented by Jim Moir (better known as TV funny man Vic Reeves) the hour-long programme tells the life story of the ‘70s icon and two-time world champion and rides some of the bikes that are a part of the legend.

He tells the story of how Sheene rose to the top and also became a hugely popular public figure. Moir meets members of Sheene’s family, close friends and rivals. Packed with rare archive and home-movie footage, the programme gives an intimate and enthralling portrait. 

Racing Legends: Barry Sheene is on BBC 2 on Sunday December 28 at 9pm.
