Scarface was many things too many people - a ruthless and vindictive murderer, a generous patron and a wild and glamorous impresario. But to all, Capone is the most notorious gangster in American history. This in-depth programme follows his journey from the immigrant neighbourhood of his youth to the glittering circles of Chicago's powerful elite. For much of the century, they were the most powerful force in American organised crime. But internal striife and the tireless work of law enforcement brought this once-dominant organisation to its knees. From his childhood on the New York City Streets to his ongoing attempts to come to terms with his criminal pasty, biography chronicles the life of the man whose story formed the basis for the hit movie.
We join host and auto veteran Mike Brewer, as he joins forces with mechanic Edd China to rebuild retro road stars in the hit motoring series Wheeler Dealers. Mike is on the search for classic motors at knock down prices that he feels have everything he needs to turn a tidy profit. With just one week to complete each car, Mike and Edd use their expertise to save the classics from an uncertain fate. First, Mike hits the car auctions, sales forecourts and classifieds looking for a motor that comes within his budget and has some star quality. Once he s made his purchase it s back to the garage where Edd gets to work on turning a rundown relic into a dream machine. Then, when the work is done, Edd hands the car back to Mike who must wheel and deal to get the best price he possibly can for the rejuvenated motor.
Together for the first time, this collection features all eleven series of Wheeler Dealers. Also included is spin-off show Trading-Up.
