    [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.

    Original BBC2 airings of S1 - S3?

    I'm well aware of the SBS recordings, and have the 576i/2GB versions on my hard drive. I'm just looking for S1 - S3 as they aired on BBC2 with no cuts and no stock music. Similar versions also aired on BBC World with slight cuts and UK Horizons with more significant cuts. These versions included...

    Original BBC2 airings of S1 - S3?

    A year later and I have an update, more will be posted in due time: I have found a semi-complete UK Horizons recording of S01E03, complete BBC2 recordings of S01E04 and S01E07, and complete BBC2 recordings of S03E02 and S03E04. I also have missing fragments from three Series 2 episodes which...

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

    As those who have read my previous threads and posting have probably guessed by now, I've been putting together a centralized ultimate collection of Top Gear, from the original version of the show to the end of the trio for my personal consumption. This is what I currently have: Old Top Gear...

    Pre-2002 Top Gear releases?

    Though OP's been inactive since the thread creation 3 months ago, I felt it important enough to share. Last night, by pure chance I might add, I bumped into a classic Top Gear torrent full of segments and many entire episodes which have long since been wiped from the internet or butchered in...

    Original BBC2 airings of S1 - S3?

    Alright, I did some deeper research and it turns out the BBC 2 versions of TG S1 - 3 were released by an individual known as Jabba, a name that I'm sure will be immediately familiar to veterans of this website, and though groundbreaking at the time, they were very poor quality, with the video...

    Tiff Needell's 20 Cars That Changed The World

    Recently I was doing research into each of the home videos released for Top Gear, up to and including writing articles for them on the Top Gear Wiki, when I discovered that former presenter Tiff Needell had made two of his own; Burning Rubber, which was more or less a clone of the far more...
