BBC World Features TEAMORIGIN's Sir Keith Mills & GBR75

The Afterguard have uncovered recently transmitted footage of GBR75 - racing with the replica 'America' off Valencia in July - as part of a BBC World Television broadcast featuring team principle Sir Keith Mills, looking at the impact of money on the world of sport.

Running at just under 52 minutes, the programme, part of the 'Have Your Say' BBC News & World service, features Sir Keith responding to issues as varied as the London 2012 Olympics, Motor Sport, Cycling & others.

The programme can be streamed from the BBC here.

A segment starting at 18:10 and running for approx. three & a half minutes covers the financial challenges of an America's Cup campaign, including the investment made by Larry Ellison in the 32nd Campaign as evidence that money won't buy you everything in the cup (The Afterguard's interpretation), set against visuals of GBR75's inaugural voyage under TEAMORIGIN ownership, sailing with the replica 'America' off Valencia on 14th July 2007.
