Clips from a selection of TV shows from the UK many of which are now broadcast in the USA
Not the usual type of motoring program you’ll see on American TV, although I believe it is broadcast on BBC America. The three presenters Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond have differing views on cars Old and New which results in some interesting and informative TV, often quirky and bordering on lunacy, but always watchable.
After a hostage rescue goes wrong, superintendent Sandra Pullman is put in charge of unsolved crimes. With little resources and no back-up she is forced to recruit three ex-policeman.
However times have changed, unlike her new recruits.
Jack Halford is yet to get over the loss of his wife, Brian Lane is over obsessed and over medicated, and Gerry Standing is not quite the ladies man he used to be. They may have the experience but it’s not like the old days. Not only are they chasing criminals, but they are having to deal with a new police force which does not always appreciate their old style policing.
Not really a program, but he became almost a British Institution and probably the most loved Comedian of his time.
With a string of sitcoms and sketch shows throughout the 1960s and 70s and a long time partnership with Ronnie Corbett as The Two Ronnies.
Perhaps one of the most iconic shows ever broadcast by the BBC, certainly one of the longest running TV Shows.
This is a recent addition to the TV schedules, being just 6 shows about iconic British Cars, some of which were actually big hits in the USA in their day.
Its a somewhat lighthearted look at the rebuilding/re-commissioning of 6 of the best known vehicles ever built in Britain.
