editor’s welcome

We’re back! After 2017, when heavy rain put a dampener on it, we were blessed with fabulous weather for both days of this year’s Land Rover Owner Show – and I’m still buzzing from it. It’s a bit of a manic weekend for me as I’m always running around trying to sort stuff, which means I was rarely on the LRO stand, but I did manage to chat to quite a few of you – and hear about your great vehicles. If you were there for the weekend, you may have seen me on Friday evening – catching up with friends and starting to make plans for next year’s show, even before the 2018 one had got underway. I’m incredibly pleased with how it all went. The tremendous feedback – both on…

tough as a defender

I’ve come to meet Brian Handley. He’s a busy film and TV cameraman, who often needs to carry a lot of kit to distant and remote parts of the country. For years, he relied on a Range Rover Classic. It was perfect as a work car; it also doubled as a prop sometimes, even appearing in The Bill. Eventually, the Classic succumbed to the ravages of time and had to be retired. Brian replaced it with a Discovery 2 – but that was just the starting point for what he had in mind. Brian is pretty confident doing anything mechanical. His father and his uncle were both mechanics. ‘I got it from them; no official training. I have a 1968 Triumph Spitfire I’ve had from almost new. As soon as I…

action man

‘I’m a freelance camerman and author. I started many years ago at ATV on Crossroads. Later I went to HTV in Cardiff where I worked with Harry Secombe and Tom Jones. After the ITV restructuring in 1993, a BBC manager tipped me off about a new drama in Spain. The working title was Little England – but it became Eldorado. I spent a year back and forth to Spain setting it up and worked on it for two-and-a-half years in total. ‘Then I went freelance and made dramas, including scores of episodes of The Bill – my Classic was outside the station as a prop, and a camera car. I used it in the BBC drama This Life as a camera car, and in Hollyoaks too. ‘I’ve always been interested in railways…

new disco sport hybrid

The 2020 version of the Discovery Sport should come with significant upgrades – as these ‘Gotcha!’ shots of the prototype show. The facelifted front, with full LED headlights, can be seen despite the camouflage. The five-plus-two-seater SUV also has a sharper, more aerodynamic body shape. Stickers on the windscreen reveal that this particular prototype is a hybrid, although further details are unavailable. The photographer reported that there were no obvious undercarriage alterations, so this Disco’s electrically assisted transmission would likely offer a modest range on full-electric power. The exhaust system is different from that of current production Disco Sports. The prototype is part of Land Rover’s plan for all its models to have an electric option by 2020. However, it shows Land Rover will still use the current Disco Sport platform for…
