Bluebird 'just went too fast'

Donald Campbells Bluebird before sinking at Coniston Water

A new book on the crash of the Bluebird in 1966 gives a scientific account of the last water speed record attempt made by British speed record breaker, Donald Campbell, who died in the attempt.

His daughter Gina Campbell and the book's author Neil Sheppard discuss if the theory gets to the truth of what really happened.
