    If anyone's interested...

    BBC 2 - 21.10

    [ QUOTE ]
    Presenters Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May head for Norway to find out how a selection of cars fare when taking part in Winter Olympic events. Their experiments include firing a rocket-powered Mini off a ski jump, tackling the biathlon with 4x4s, staging a game of motorised ice hockey and timing the Jaguar XK in a speed skating race

    What a great show! Best moments (among many gems) were Richard Hammond's attempting to dig into the snow only to slide in the opposite direction, and the realisation that he'd built a (not very good) retaining wall at the bottom of the wrong slope.

    Yip a lot of it was stupid but folks it was ENTERTAINMENT , dont think you can think of it as anything more .
    come on who didnt laugh at clarkston with the machine gun shooting the tree down?(supposidly) & hamster building the dam in the wrong place ! !!!!!!
    Its moved from being a "car show" to being car show/talkshow and light entertainment!
