    [01x02] October 27th, 2002

    Finally got hold of a BBC World clip of the Ford Focus RS test via the Wayback machine. This, coupled along with the Noble M12 test in that season's "Best-of" compilation, means I can now name a majority of the episode's ORIGINAL, pre-butchered soundtrack, mostly thanks to Soundhound...

    [04x02] May 16th, 2004

    Soundhound managed to identify the choral piece around 2:30 in: Henryk Górecki - Totus Tuus I'm currently subtitling S4 & 5 as part of my updated pack, and listing all of the tracks as they play is one of my priorities.

    Paddy McGuinness Crashes Lamborghini filming for TopGear

    I actually called this incident in a Discord server the day before it happened - that the two inoffensive stooges accompanying Harris wouldn't be truly appreciative of what they were behind the wheel of. And unfortunately, I was proven right. Clarkson's production crew was actually responsible...

    Original BBC2 airings of S1 - S3?

    Triple post I know, but here's the trailer for Series 1 of Top Gear: Gonna comb through the rest of the recordings available to me to see what else I can find.

    HD upscaled pre-2009 Top Gear

    Let's be completely 100% honest here, even if this does tread on a few toes: Scene BUTCHERED the original releases of S4 - S13, and Maxiuca's S1 - S3 erased a large, to this day irreplaceable chunk of Top Gear history. We would have been quite frankly better off without them. Anyway, what's an...

    Original BBC2 airings of S1 - S3?

    Turned out my update was not-so final after all: You'll get this and MUCH more (though no more original airings for the time being) in August, as @Phat_J can attest.

    Top Gear DVD covers

    Apologies for the decade-long necrobump but I figured it would be better to bump this ancient thread than start my own over a single post. Firstly, as I've stated in the past, I am very surprised that the BBC never issued the first 8 series of CHM Top Gear in any format. You'd think its surge in...

    Original BBC2 airings of S1 - S3?

    Final update: I found two BBC2 airings of S1 (E4 & E7), two UK Horizons airings of S1 (E3 & E4), and three BBC2 airings of S3 (E2, E4 & E7). That's 5 out of the 29 which aired. However, the soundtrack of S01E03 is identical to the 2005 BBC Prime version; it's probably the only S1 episode which...

    Pre-2002 Top Gear releases?

    Just to update, approximately 2 weeks ago I released my collection on Reddit. PM me for the URL, since this interface automatically inserts the whole post when you paste in a link. Alternately, google for "Top Gear Ultimate Pack v4.0". You can't miss it.

    Pre-2002 Top Gear releases?

    Hey there! Nice to see you didn't abandon your project, just to let you know I am no more than a month away from releasing something of my own featuring the entire Top Gear chronology prior to 2015, including home videos, so don't put yourself through unnecessary amounts of work just yet. Here's...

    Original BBC2 airings of S1 - S3?

    Kinda yeah, except I actually have the BBC2 version of that episode, as well as a BBC2 version of S01E07 and a UK Horizons version of S01E03: Don't get me wrong, the SBS airings of S1 are the most complete since the original BBC2 version, and definitely the highest quality recording, as even...

    Searching for Series 19 - Series 22 in their original 1080i format

    I know that, but personal collections are a thing. You don't promote by stating that you have it. Just a private personal matter.

    Top Gear S28

    It might just be pre-emptiveness, but in spite of all the glowing reviews I've read and the heavy publicisation of the episode as the first special since the departure of CHM, the ratings appear to spiraling down again: S27E01: 4.81 million S27E03: 4.44 million S27E05: 3.77 million S28E00: 3.35...

    Searching for Series 19 - Series 22 in their original 1080i format

    Well, almost 700 of you saw this thread since May last year and not one of you had anything to say. Ah well, I found 19 - 22 in the end. I also have quite a few rarities such as Top 41 in its entirety, Festival Sydney and both parts of A-Z.
