    Richard Hammond is the MAN...

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/pages/liv...n_page_id=1773

    Cliff Notes:

    - He wants the BBC to show the crash
    - He is ready to get in front of a camera
    - He will basically fight to keep the show from being cancelled.

    x10 to Richard...

    I didn't even know the show was shown in America...

    Tis a great show some of tests & stunts they perform on the vehicles are well good..

    I like the part of the show where Clarkson races Hammond & Jerromy(?) accross another country in an attempt to prove that the car is the fastest means of travel..

    Yeah, it really isn't shown much at all (that I can find).

    I saw the one you're thinking of. They were racing from London to a Swiss ski resort and Jeremy passed them a few hundred yards from the end. I'm sure THAT wasn't planned.

    I like the Aston martin one where he makes fun of the french. lol

    Discovery did a test run with it and it did ok I think, If this season takes off there should be a full schedule for it on discovery aired after the UK season, like with the Dr. Who show.

    Hi mountainman

    Thanks for the update.

    As to its Showing...Anyone with Satellite can get it on BBC Channel Wed. 3:30 PM EST, though its off air for summer break now. It also usually repeats a couple of times again at various times.

    All the PC's will be out trying to start a Ban of the show, as they break speed limits etc. If they had their way vehicles would be governed for 65mph.

    Glad to see Hammond recovering so well and quickly

    Were they looking to cancel the show before the accident? I think TG is the best produced show I have ever seen, I don't understand why we can get it over here.

    IT'S ridiculous to try to stop these things happening. They are all planned, they are voluntary by the presenters.
