Your classic Japanese Grand Prix
If Bernie Ecclestone ever wants to know why he needs to protect Formula 1's heritage and not abandon classic tracks for lucrative but boring modern autodromes, he could do worse than read the views of the readers of the BBC's classic grand prix series.
It has been immensely rewarding to see how enthusiastic and energised all the respondents on this blog have been for the last few editions, which have featured some of the greatest circuits in F1.
This latest edition is no exception.
All five of our selection for classic Japanese Grands Prix fully live up to that title, but 1994 is our worthy winner.
The full Grand Prix highlights programme of the time is embedded below, along with shorter highlights of that race and other four choices - James Hunt's dramatic title win in 1976, the title-deciding collision between Alain Prost and Ayrton Senna in 1989, the all-out duel between Michael Schumacher and Mika Hakkinen in 2000 that ended Ferrari's 21-year wait for a drivers' championship and the stunning 2005 race.
The highlights will be on satellite and cable in the UK from 1200 BST on Wednesday 30 September until 1800 on Friday 2 October. Because of a lack of bandwidth, they will be only be available on Freeview channel 301 from 0300 on Friday 2 October until 0600, which is in between the first two practice sessions from Japan.

All are brilliant races in their different ways, but my personal favourite is 2005, details of which I went into in my last classic races blog.
In fact, I think there is a strong argument for it being the greatest race of all time. It didn't get much support from you lot, and I suspect that was partly to do with the fact that it is very recent, and partly to do with a bit of tactical voting - you knew you were not going to get long highlights if it 'won'.
The 1994 race, though, was indeed a great event. Damon Hill drove his greatest race to beat Michael Schumacher in the wet on aggregated time after a mid-race stoppage.
The grand prix, held in torrential rain, was in two parts after a stoppage called when Martin Brundle's spinning McLaren hit a marshal who was moving another car and broke his leg.
In those days, unlike now, a drivers' times from the two parts of the race were added together to make his total race time. Schumacher was leading when the race was stopped, but Hill drove brilliantly in the second part to build a bigger advantage, and he won by just over three seconds on aggregate.
Williams co-owner Patrick Head told me last year: "Damon simply outdrove Michael in the wet. And not many people do that."
It was, Hill acknowledges, his greatest ever drive. Last year, I did a long interview with him on his time at Williams, and he talked extensively about that race.
"Something came out of me," he said, "which I'd been trying to get out, which needed the right circumstances, and I think I battled through. I never got to the height I did in Suzuka before, or perhaps even since."
Hill is remarkably introspective, thoughtful and self-analytical for a racing driver - and in the right mood, he is prepared to share that analysis with interviewers. This was one of those moments, and rather than have me bang on about what happened, I'll simply hand over to him. It makes fascinating reading.
"Nigel [Mansell] was there [as Hill's Williams team-mate]," Hill said. "I was supposed to be the team leader but for some reason I just could not seem to get that indication from the team, not from the team, but from [boss] Frank [Williams].
"I have to say it wasn't the team. The guys I worked with were always terrific. But I think Frank and Patrick never regarded me, at that stage, as being their front-line guy. And that's why they had Nigel there. So I constantly felt they were looking for someone else to deliver. I felt that was really demoralising. I thought that there was obviously something about me which made them doubtful of me.
"And I doubt myself. I constantly doubt myself. I'm constantly giving it out. I don't think I can blame them for that. I wasn't someone who can walk in and have 100% confidence and give off that vibe. Like, say, Michael Schumacher does. So I don't think that was helpful in that situation. I was very internal and introspective. And eventually at Suzuka Patrick gave me a bit of talking to.
"I was getting very intense about the whole thing and I was in a bit of a strop because they were all over Nigel and I thought: 'He can't win the championship! OK, he won it before, but he can't win it now. I can. Why are they making such a big deal about Nigel?' And eventually you just go: 'I don't get it. I don't care. I'm just going to drive.' And I think I released myself from something."
Indeed he did. It was a quite remarkable drive - as were so many of the others in this selection. Enjoy.
