    [19x06] March 3rd, 2013 [Africa Special, Part 1]

    Lots of excerpts from the incidental music from Zulu in there. No time stamps as usual

    [19x06] March 3rd, 2013 [Africa Special, Part 1]

    He denied whitening his teeth, too:D Hell, but that was a fun hour of TV. They can pull it together when they really want to. I laughed out loud and a lot just at the banter - proper yak between mates on the road and the few planned visual jokes there were (the queue for the lav) were subtly...

    [19x04] February 17th, 2013

    Two misconceptions here. Firstly, Top Gear started life as a review show. Any positive review could be construed as an "advert" for the brand and the BBC has always allowed TG to do this. In fact, there are and always have been other shows which feature branded products on the BBC. The second...

    With reference to the Twickenham pitch, which many people have mentioned, I can only assume the Kia rugby match was played last summer (the weather looked crap enough) immediately prior to the turf being relaid or the hybrid natural/artificial pitch with which they replaced it is REALLY hard...

    Thought I heard a snippet from Steve Reich's Different Trains during the race, but I don't do time stamps. Sorry. Maybe someone else can confirm

    Because James had to stick to the roads and Hammond could dodge around buildings, junctions and alleyways?

    And I'm pretty sure it'll be paired with this year's Africa special to form Great Adventures whatever number they're up to

    Unfortunately, they set themselves a high standard with the Bonneville roadtrip several series ago and I tend to measure all others against that. This one didn't really shape up, although there was nothing wrong with it. Also (and I say this with trepidation, lest I should get my head bitten...

    Top Gear viewing figures

    I see they count the BBC HD viewers separately. As the show is broadcast at the same time on HD, that would bring the total numbers for the first broadcast up to 6.2m, which is average for Top Gear viewed "live"

    Jeremy on Danny Baker's Great Album Showdown

    I should clarify - despite this programme apparently attracting zero interest - that this is on BBC 4 Television. It's not on the wireless.

    Jeremy on Danny Baker's Great Album Showdown

    Tuesday, 5th February at 9.00 pm on BBC4. Jeremy is one of Danny Baker's three guests talking about the heyday of the vinyl album and picking their favourites. It's a three part series, but Clarkson is only guesting on the first one. Not too many prizes for guessing some of the albums he will...

    Regarding Season 19

    14 episodes a year is what they promised. This series was originally 6 episodes (5 studio days + the introduction for the special), extended to 7, probably because the special may be spread over two episodes. That leaves 7 or 8 for a second series, which they have said they are going to make. I...

    Quite funny. However, I hope you Americans on this board know that nobody in the UK says "jolly good show, old chap". Nobody.

    Clarkson: Jeremy on QI Jan 25, 26 / 2013

    The series was recorded around September. I wonder if there was something in it that referred to a news story which made it inappropriate for broadcast at the correct time

    Clarkson: The Weekly Times Comment Column by Jeremy Thread

    No, Revelator, Jeremy's right. Jeremy went to public school which, over here, is private school for the wealthy. If he'd wanted to take a gap year, I'm sure he could have afforded to do so. Some people certainly took a gap year in his (and my) day, but they were the exception rather than the...

    Top Gear Series 19

    Radio Times shows this Sunday's episode as 1 of 7. Maybe the special is a two-parter after all
