No Ordinary Joe
In this fascinating new documentary, poignant family memories and the personal recollections of friends, teammates, fans, and fellow racers reveal the real Joey Dunlop O.B.E., the caring, fun-loving family man behind the motorcycle racing legend. The statistics of the Ulsterman's career are well known: a five-times World Champion, 26-times Isle of Man TT winner, 24-times Ulster Grand Prix winner, and 14-times North West 200 winner. In this program, we discover the less well know Joey: a devoted husband, father, and brother; a dedicated charity worker; a compassionate and down-to-earth man unaffected by his worldwide fame. There are deeply personal tributes, memories of his charity work and hilarious anecdotes, like Joey's encounter with frozen beans, getting lost in the fog in Europe, and why the police were after Joey! This DVD includes previously unseen DVD extras, including a story about Joey teaching his brother Jim to fall correctly, why Joey kept running out of petrol in the Isle of Man, World Superbike's Eugene Laverty recalling seeing hero Joey racing, extended coverage of Linda's Japan visit, including a look around the Honda Museum, and much more.
