In the episode where Richard Hammond returned after his big accident they had him coming down the boarding steps at the beginning of the show.
Does anyone know the name of the song they played, name and artist if possible.

Bonus points for the name of the nice bit of crumpet at the bottom of the steps on the left side.

What are your thoughts on the upcoming foreign versions of Top Gear?
(Australian and American) Personally I think they're doomed to failure, the American version because the kind of commentary used to spice up the British version will end up in thousands of court cases here and the Australian version will fail because of Australias isolation from a good source of cars to test. Once they've done the local stuff the show is done.

Lets hope the British version continues for many years to come.

I have had E mails from the lady in question.She lives in Estonia,has a personal fortune of $25 million from an inheritance but needs help getting it out of the country. If I send her the money for a club class ticket from Talinn on Estoniair she will grab the next Poikarpov over to share it with me.Just as soon as the pilot has finished his geography homework...
