There's very interesting stuff about his time at Brabham (with some interviews with Bernie), his move to McLaren, his McLaren F1 and current project T25/T27.

It gives a great insight into how designers looked at the regulations and how they then found ways around them. Murray's Brabham "fan car" and his answer to the static minimum ride height test are covered.
watched this tonight... excellent documentary!

It's entertaining to watch engineers squeeze the best performance out of arbitrary regulations.

Those front wings are beginning to look like pretzels.
