And on That Bombshell
- Inside the Madness and Genius of TOP GEAR
- By: Richard Porter
- Narrated by: Richard Porter, Ben Elliot
- Length: 8 hrs and 30 mins
For 13 years, 22 series and 175 shows, Richard Porter was script editor of Top Gear, from the first faltering pilot episode in 2002 until the very last show presented by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May in 2015. Along the way they destroyed cars, sparked diplomatic incidents, set fire to caravans, almost killed one of the presenters, and somehow transformed Top Gear from a shabby BBC Two motoring show into an Emmy-winning, record-breaking, planet-straddling behemoth.
Fantastic insight into my favourite show.

Great story. But the recording is too sibilant. The “s”’s are ear-piercing. EQ it next time!
