    Not really my cup of tea, but it's a bit of light-hearted fun. i don't really buy the argument that it encourages people to drive recklessly.

    I like TG. It's OK entertainment.
    BUT, if that's the best 'FACTUAL PROGRAMME' on TV then were in a worst state than I thought. Gordon Bennett.

    I do find the media slapping itself on the back mildly awful though...

    When are we gonna have "Food Scientist of the Year", "Call Centre Personality of the Year" etc. etc?

    I agree; entertaining but hardly factual.

    Awards ceremonies achieve many targets. The people in the meedja business need their egos inflating on a regular basis and it is relatively cheap to produce.

    Not entertaining and not the best factual programme on TV.

    Top Gear is a load of rubbish. Same as all other TV awards!

    AND someone told me once that I have to pay for it (ha ha ha!)

    It's the best, factual program.
    That doesn't necessarily mean it's the best program for facts.
    It just means out of the all the programs that are classed as 'factual', that's the one people enjoy watching most. Not that it's the most factual.
    As Alistair Campbell would say.

    I didn't notice that and I watched the whole bit involving it.
    How the hell did Clarkson manage to fit in it AND still have enough freedom of movement to drive it though?

    Oh yes! Saw the repeat last night, was in stitches watching that bit.. Especially John Humphries nicking it. Laughing now, thinking about it.

    I want one. Could almost fit it in the flat!

    Mind you, although it was a foregone conclusion, the bugatti/eurofighter bit was well filmed for excitment, it got my heart racing. Or was that Hammond...:blush:

    But by god, I wish he'd cut his hair...
