27 May 2020

Jaguar UK has partnered with Sky Media for the launch of Sky Documentaries, a new home for feature length and series documentaries which airs for the first time on the 27th of May

Sharing Jaguar’s passion for creativity and storytelling, Sky Documentaries seeks to challenge, provoke and entertain viewers across a broad range of topics from sport and real-world controversies through to biographies of some of the world’s most famous and infamous people.

In keeping with the documentary genre, the iconic British marque is offering viewers a glimpse of its unseen world through a series of 15 second films that ‘bookend’ Sky Documentaries programmes. Each film reveals unseen elements of Jaguar’s cutting-edge design and development process including the art of clay modelling, innovative machine modelling, aerodynamics development, sound engineering and vehicle testing in some of the world’s most hostile of environments.
