Early 70's RRC sales video

Les Parker- the friendly voice on Rovers North phone system posted this and I thought I'd share it here.

What did you think of the nearly 50yr old cinematography?

The lambs bleating in the background in the one part while no one spoke was different. They try to convey a "powerful V8 engine" by showing the trucks going too fast in most scenario's.

I saw this the other day.
I was wondering where/when Rover would've shown these infomercials back then?
I remember back in the late 90's/early 2000's when all the Centers were showing the late night infomercials highlighting the D2 and P38.
I guess thy have a history of this type of video stuff.

Pretty good quality.

Youtube for the non bookfacers. So ahead of its time. Could you imagine this in 1970..
