    This film shows the 1968 British Grand Prix, not 1969 as the title suggests. Race was held on July 21 1968.

    Man at 00:05 in red jacket is Lotus boss Colin Chapman.

    "R Widdows" is Robin Widdows.

    Driver of car 10 seen standing in car at 01:23 is Jo Siffert, (not "J Seiffert" as later mentioned in shots list).

    At 01:27, Graham Hill is featured.

    "Car with J Stewart along the side" that's Jackie Stewart.

    "D Hulme" is Denny Hulme.

    "LS winning driver" - that again is Jo Siffert.
