I spent a very long, very cold, but very fascinating night in Rome filming a documentary about John Cooper, the racing driver and brains behind the legendary Mini Cooper rally car.
In the documentary I play the title role of John Cooper who develops the idea of putting an engine at the back of the car and then goes on to develop the Mini. The documentary is slated to show on Italian (and then European) television later next year.
We filmed at a technical college in the middle of Rome where, amongst other things, there were a couple of aircraft hanging around. Which was nice.
