Who is the voice-over announcer who does the F1 reviews from the 1980's?
I'm not talking about the BBC commentary from Murray Walker and James
Hunt, but the guy whodoes the shortened retrospective of the races of
the year? If you have access to the F1 Archives, then you'll know who
I'm talking about.

Without access I'd guess maybe Clive James?

Okay, I've heard of him, sounds about right.

Okay, doesn't Clive James have a slight Australian accent, since he is
Australian? The guy in these videos is speaking very generic BBC RP
English.

Clive doesn't have much of an accent. Most non-larrikin Aussies quickly learn to drop the accent
when staying the UK for any length of time.

Okay, let's go with that for the moment.

"A well known fan of motor racing, James presented the 1982, 1984 and
1986 official Formula One season review videos produced by the Formula
One Constructors Association, more commonly known as FOCA. James, who
attended most F1 races during the 1980s and was a friend of former FOCA
boss Bernie Ecclestone, added his own humour to the reviews which became
popular with fans of the sport. He also presented The Clive James
Formula 1 Show for ITV to coincide with their Formula One coverage in 1997."

He lived in the UK from 1962 until his death last Nov.

1987 was narrated by Peter Ustinov. In 1985 several of the current
drivers provide commentary. For the 1988 review, "all these fascinating
questions are answered when Stirling Moss and Tony Jardine give you your
pass to the pitlane."
