An extraordinary look back at the greatest land speed records in history. HOW LONG A MILE DVD: Documentary about Donald Campbell's record-breaking achievements on both land and water. In July 1964, Campbell became the fastest man on Earth as he travelled around Lake Eyre at 403.10 mph in the Bluebird CN7. In December of the same year he broke the water speed record reaching 276.33 mph on Lake Dumbleyung in the Bluebird K7. To this day, Campbell remains the only person to ever set both land and water records in the same year and this documentary examines and celebrates his success. LITTLE BOOK OF LAND SPEED RECORD: It took 99 years to break the sound barrier without leaving the ground and this fascinating little book tells the tales of the faster men on earth. From the very first 39 mph-plus speed record of Gaston de Chasseloup-Laubat s electric car in 1898 to Thrust SSC s sonic boom in 1997, plus everything in-between, all in fascinating detail. With many wonderful photographs accompany this written record to fully illustrate the challenges, tragedies and triumphs of each record achievement and the character of the incredible men determined to advance the world s land speed record. Throughout the history of land speed records we ve seen the amazing progression from electric vehicles to steam power, gasoline, methanol, rocket fuel and finally jet fuel.
