When Steve Bannon left his position as White House chief strategist less than a week after the Charlottesville "Unite the Right" rally in August 2017, he was already a notorious figure in Trump's inner circle, and for bringing a far-right ideology into the highest echelons of American politics. Unconstrained by an official post - though some say he still has a direct line to the White House - he became free to peddle influence as a a perceived kingmaker, turning his controversial brand of nationalism into a global movement. The Brink follows Bannon through the 2018 mid-term elections in the United States, shedding light on his efforts to mobilize and unify far-right parties in order to win seats in the May 2019 European Parliamentary elections. To maintain his power and influence, the former Goldman Sachs banker and media investor reinvents himself - as he has many times before - this time as the self-appointed leader of a global populist movement. Keen manipulator of the press and gifted self-promoter, Bannon continues to draw headlines and protests wherever he goes, feeding the powerful myth to which his survival relies.

Skillfully edited from more than 24 hours of High Definition coverage, the review tells the full story of each class, with trackside, aerial and in-car cameras ensuring you don’t miss any of the pivotal events. The commentary features a seamless mix of the live TV and Radio Le Mans coverage, plus driver and team interviews and, for the first time, the chance to listen in on race director Eduardo Freitas as he talks to the racers. The opening hours delivered an epic duel between Audi’s R18 e-Tron Quattro and the new TS030 Hybrid from Toyota in the LMP1 class, but even after Toyota’s determined effort was ended, the four-way Audi tussle ensured an edge-of-the-seat contest as the hours ticked down. With the end in sight, 10 minutes of madness saw the Audi challenge thrown into chaos, but the team’s ever-cool approach ensured they could not be denied a 10th Le Mans win, and the first victory for a hybrid car. The review also follows the fortunes of the LMP2 class, including returning former sportscar World Champion Martin Brundle, and the drama of the Professional and Amateur GTE classes. Plus, of course, there is the debut of the eye-catching Delta Wing Nissan. Through day and night, crashes, spins, mechanical problems and even loose wheels bring new twists to the race, not least the shocking crash which left Brit Anthony Davison with serious back injuries and the actions of Romain Dumas, whose brutal treatment of his stricken R18 Ultra showed just how determined the heroes of Le Sarthe are. The 2012 Le Mans 24 Hours was action and drama all the way, and now you can experience it all in the most thrilling highlights.
