Cycling Stunt Man 1974

2 mins United Kingdom

We'll probably never know what brought Mike Wilson, Gloucester's budget answer to Evel Knievel, to the attention of ATV Today, but reporter David Eggleton has made the long journey from Birmingham to see him and was presumably expecting something spectacular. It's not just jumping on a bike and going over a plank, you know.

The Media Archive for Central England is the public screen archive for the East and West Midlands. An independent charity and company based at the University of Lincoln, MACE acquires, catalogues, preserves and makes widely available moving image materials that inform our understanding of the diverse cultures and histories of communities between the Lincolnshire coast and the Welsh border.
