As part of his second series, Brian Johnson is focusing on some of the world’s most iconic cars. On Thursday 21 May, viewers will get an insight into MG and get to take a look behind the scenes at the iconic Longbridge site.

For almost 90 years, MG has produced sports cars and created an automotive heritage that has captivated people worldwide.
