    Default Top Gear Team in Trouble (again)

    I was reading teletext last night and came across this.

    Some viewers have too mcuh time on their hand, but you can understand the problem! Mainly drink driving !

    I remeber this show, and it was absolutely hilarious, especially when JC drove off with Captain Slow sat on the back of this 4WD having a dump!! !

    Heres the link: http://www.nzherald.co.nz/section/9/...ectid=10519790

    Here's the story:
    An icy Top Gear episode showing hosts Jeremy Clarkson and James May drinking and driving has landed the pair in hot water.


    The Polar Special, which screened in the UK last year and in New Zealand last month, featured the two drinking gin and tonics while trying to reach the Magnetic North Pole.


    The BBC Trust was bombarded with viewer complaints about the episode, which also screened an image of a frostbitten p3n1s.
    BBC Trust criticised the show, saying it "could be seen to glamorise the misuse of alcohol".


    BBC reports that the show's executive producer defended the pair's behaviour, saying that they were beyond the jurisdiction of drink drive laws, and were actually in international waters at the time.


    The trust accepted that neither presenter was drunk or out of control of the vehicle, but said it was "not editorially justified in the context of a family show" at the time it screened.


    In relation to the image of frostbitten genitalia, a statement from the trust said there was "a clear editorial purpose for the inclusion of an image of a frostbitten p3n1s, which had been shown for a medical rather than a sexual purpose".

    Not really a "family" car review show anymore.

    I know kids love this program as I chat to people at work, so maybe needs to be toned down a little?

    Still effin though!

    I've still got that episode saved on Sky+ lol!

    I knew they'd get complaints. Clarkson even says in it something like "don't write in and state drink driving laws, cause we're not driving...we're sailing!"

    lol, I came across the same thing on the BBC website. I can't believe that, given the context it was done in on the programme, people wrote in to complain!
