I am a new convert to this show, I just found it on BBCA last year. This is easily my favorite show now. A friend of mine had a house guest from London last month, and he told me that what we see is years behind what is showing in England, is this true?
Like to know if others appreciate this show.

Fantastic show, the presenters are pretty well the most influential journalists currently on the BBC. Worldwide viewing figures for Top Gear is 350 million and it's the single largest export programme for the BBC.

Richard Hammond (hamster) was almost killed in an accident whilst filming Top Gear a couple of series ago. He was rescued by the Leeds Air Ambulance. Jeremy Clarkson and James May asked the public (via the press) to not send anything directly to the BBC or the hospital, but to donate some money to Leeds Air Ambulance to help with the fuels costs.

They raised enough money to buy a new helicopter! That's what the British public think of Top Gear.

Me, I love it! It's often the talking point round the office and we all look forward to the next series. :) It's exactly the type of motoring show people want - fun with cars!

And yes!

You probably are years behind!...... Think of all the catch-up shows you can look forward to. :)
