Newly uploaded today from my archive of old Mini videos. This was on the list of many that Taffy was editing for me, I think he would have liked/remembered the clip, although I doubt he was a Cliff Richard fan........
The late Raymond Baxter introduces the Mini as a milestone of motoring on the 1992 Royal Variety Show.
A WW2 Spiitfire pilot, an experienced rally driver (including Mini's), Raymond Baxter commentated on many different things, but became best known for his work in F1 and the Le Mans 24 Hours before handing over motorsport commentary to Murray Walker. From 1965 he was the presenter of Tomorrow's World, a TV show that inspired an entire generation to be interested in technology. He was briefly put in charge of publicity at the British Motor Corporation while still working for the BBC. He died at the age of 84 in 2006.
