SAVING THE TIGER.

The Tank Museum at Bovington is home to the biggest collection of armoured fighting vehicles in the world.

Its mission is to preserve these vehicles for posterity and future historians and, where possible, to maintain them in running order.

Conspicuous among the Museum's tanks is Tiger Tank No. 131. Originally captured in Tunisia in 1943, where the tank was a rude shock to the Allies with its formidable armour and overwhelming firepower, 131 was shipped back to England for extensive study.

Literally taken to pieces, it eventually became the object of an ambitious restoration programme by the Museum to restore it to full running order.

This video, sold on DVD, tracks the process of the restoration, a race against time to ready it for inclusion in the Museum's 'Tankfest' show and interweaves this with the history of the tank itself.

David Fletcher, The Tank Museum’s historian, fronts this short web video about the world’s very first tank, Little Willie (so-named in a tongue-in-cheek dig at Kaiser Wilhelm) British-built, it established the essential pattern on which all future tank development would be based.
