Three short documentaries about the early world of motor sports and extreme sports. 'Wheels of Adventure' looks at the motorcar and the epic early endurance races. 'They Must be Mad' examines extreme sports, from skiing down Everest to dune buggy racing. Finally, 'The Great Races' is an exploration of the Golden Age of motor racing, from the turn of the century to the start of the Second World War, when men ignored safety in the pursuit of glory.
