26-minute promo film for Rover 3-Litre launch in September 1958. Source of much early footage for Rover: The Long Goodbye, usually with better (original) quality. Lots of Rover history, starting with founder James Starley making bicycles

Film can be seen at youtube (good quality) and Pathé (muddy); both sites split it into 3 reels, and to give reliable timings I've entered pages as if each reel is a separate episode.
