The French Connection - Channel 4 this Friday night - 1.20am.
The 1971 Gene Hackman film with the famous car chase through Brooklyn in New York. See if it is more exciting than F1 qualifying on the same channel a bit later.
(One of the accidents is real! The director didn't think the existing footage was good enough so later sent along a stuntman to just race up and down in the car for a bit when the road had been re-opened and filmed it. An oblivious innocent motorist entered one of the junctions and .... crash! They left it in the movie).
