Doug Hill of the National Motor Museum

Back in 1973, a young Doug Hill applied for an apprenticeship in the workshop of the National Motor Museum at Beaulieu. With the restoration of a 1939 Morgan already under his belt, Doug was a shoe-in to get the place.

He rose up through the ranks and became Chief Engineer in 1989 and Museum Director in 1991. As a dyed-in-the-wool petrolhead with a passion for motoring history, Doug might just have the best job in the world.

Tim Barnes-Clay met Doug to talk about his life at the museum, how things have changed and how they will change in future.
