Perhaps the best top gear sequence I have ever seen.

Watching now on MBC Action.

Laughed so much I was crying.

The train sequence was classic.

Question: what series was this in.

is it available on YOU Tub..

The team / BBC got a lot of flack from the Indians when it was transmitted, according to the UK news papers, ( as per G search).

It was a very very well made, program, which I would love to see again, just to laugh at the bits I missed.

I have lived and worked in India, for 2 years, and did not see anything that I found false representation of the culture.

Hope to find a copy.

It's been repeated quite a few times on Dave if you are in the UK, saw it a couple of weeks back.

Not been back to UK since 625 lines / PAL won the TV wars.

Saw it again this morning, and managed to shot the screen for the credits.

Is it available anywhere to download / buy copy.

I have it, my son downloaded it immediately after the release. That particular site does not exist any more but there are lots of similar sites around, he says. None of them strictly legal though.

Coincidentally watched it a few days ago on Netflix. Haven't laughed that hard in a very long time. Pity my fellow Indians failed to see the humour in it.

Just a little "taster" of the full programme:
