In 1985 and 1986, mercurial climber Robert Millar twice came one step away from becoming Britain’s first Grand Tour winner – only for a combination of bad luck, mismanagement, Machiavellian machinations and team alliances to thwart him.

Re-Cycle is written by Felix Lowe, narrated by Graham Willgoss, and produced by Pete Burton.
