Unseen family footage of Donald Campbell breaking the land and water speed records in 1964 has been restored to mark their 50th anniversaries.

That year in Australia, Campbell set a new land speed record of 403.10mph (644.96km/h) on the dry bed of Lake Eyre on 17 July. On water he reached 276.33mph (444.71km/h) at Lake Dumbleyung on 31 December.

He is the only person to have broken both records in the same year.

The film, How Long A Mile, which Campbell directed, has been restored at Hampshire's Beaulieu Motor Museum.

BBC South Today's Paul Clifton has been speaking to Campbell's nephew Don Wales.
