The true story of Formula One s greatest family.
Charting the story of Formula One s most celebrated family, Williams is a thrilling account of how one man built a racing empire and a vivid, heart-rending portrait of the aftermath of a tragedy.
Starting life with nothing other than a single-minded obsession for speed, Sir Frank Williams created one of the world s most enduring Formula One racing teams, winning nine Constructors Championships over the last 40 years. But in 1986 at the height of this success, a near fatal car accident left Frank fighting to survive and the team s future hanging in the balance.
Williams, a brand new documentary from BAFTA-wining director Morgan Matthews, tells the story of Frank s rise to fame and how his family battled to keep him alive and the team afloat after the crash that left Frank wheelchair-bound for the rest of his life. Featuring heart-pounding racing footage, interviews with much-loved Formula One stars (including Sir Jackie Stewart, Nigel Mansell, Alan Jones and Sir Patrick Head) and candid never-before-seen accounts of what really went on behind closed doors, it is an honest, authentic and incredibly revealing portrait of one of the most extraordinary families in motorsport.
