The seemingly always busy and active Idris Elba toplined this 2-part, 2-hour feature documentary that sees him travel the world, looking at the history of motorcar racing.

Titled Idris Elba: King Of Speed, the BBC2 doc series highlights the colorful political, social and historical evolution of racing, from prohibition to the present. 

Southan Morris produces and directs.

The project was shot earlier this year, and eventually aired in the UK. And while it's not yet officially available in the USA, it was only a matter of time before the film was uploaded online, for the rest of the world to watch. So, don't be surprised if this disappears before you get a chance to watch it below.

It won't be the first time that Idris has fronted a documentary series for British TV.

There was Channel 4's 2011 doc series How Hip Hop Changed The World, which was followed by the 2-hour doc, How Clubbing Changed the World, last year, 2012 - both toplined by Elba.

Watch parts 1 & 2 of King Of Speed below before they disappear:
