Product Description

Being a Top Gear presenter is often described as being the best job in the world, especially if you work in a factory gutting chickens, (which I used to do). So in this DVD, featuring stunts and tomfoolery never seen on TV, I show you how to master the dark art of being a Top Gear host, and how to make your own Top Gear show. This DVD will change your life forever. Probably.

How to Make a Top Gear Film in Your Own Home
Haven’t got access to the Swiss Alps or the salt flats of Utah? No probs. All you need is for your parents to be out of the house for the day, and a mental stunt biker friend to drop round.

Engineering Excellence
Demonstrating engineering excellence is something that should come naturally to a Top Gear presenter. Converting an ice-cream van into a fully-fledged hovercraft should be no problem for Richard then.

How to Make a Top Gear Road Test
The art of the powerslide, talking nonsense whilst not crashing, drag racing the stupidest thing with a jet engine you can find…The secret world of how to make Top Gear road test is all here.

The Top Gear Work Ethic
Even on holiday, a Top Gear presenter must be able to knock up a quick action film. Cue a picturesque beach and a Dakar-ready Bowler Nemesis... racing its own 12-tonne support truck.

Top Gear - A Public Service
“All you ever do is cock about.” That’s a common complaint which breaks our heart. But as I show you with this scientific experiment involving loads of flying bricks and demolished walls, a Top Gear presenter only ever cocks about for the good of mankind.

Top Gear Passion
Richard selflessly ventures to Italy, driving the Lamborghini Gallardo Balboni, Ferrari Scuderia and Pagani Zonda Cinque to prove, er… something very important about passion and stuff like that.

With an exclusive look at the world of Top Gear Scientific Research, the Top Gear Diet, the Top Gear Presenter’s Wardrobe and the Top Gear complaints procedure, this DVD is the ultimate insight into the Top Gear world.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, a dud 1 Nov 2010
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love Top Gear and think Richard Hammond is an excellent presenter. However the script and stunts on this DVD are way below the standard of the Top Gear series.
One exception being the driving through brick wall in slow motion which is fascinating. The description on the DVD is Top Gear Uncovered -- a look behind the scenes. There was none of that. The DVD is intended as a joke, a sort of weak parody of TG. But sadly it does not pull it off. It is mainly just silly, and the attempted humour is very repetitive and obvious, and aimed at schoolboys. Of course Top Gear is full of schoolboy humour -- but TG is well written and funny. I did manage to watch all the way through to the end of this boring DVD, but only due to Richard Hammond's personality which made the best of the poor material. At least I have got one Christmas Present sorted out now -- just got to decide who deserves this dud.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing 3 Jan 2010
By Mrs. A
Format:DVD
Bought for my husband as a requested Xmas present (an avid fan of TG for many years), was not at all what he expected and was very disappointing overall - really a waste of money.

5.0 out of 5 stars Its a Top Gear DVD! Simples! 20 Nov 2009
By J_Caine
Format:DVD
I have to totally disagree with the negative review.

This DVD is a nice extension to the Top Gear series.

Yes, there is no Clarkson or May but Hammond leads the charge superbly.

There are some fantastic stunts, beautiful cars and the whole thing is pinned down by classic Top Gear humour.

If you like the show, then youıll like this DVD.

Itıs as simple as that!

2.0 out of 5 stars Bit of a let down 29 Nov 2009
Format:DVD
I am a TG fan and I was expecting a bit more from this DVD, but it was just a let down from start to finish. It just seems like they wanted something out in time for Christmas and this is all they could come up with. The idea behind it is weak and poorly executed. Hammond comes across badly in it. He tries for Clarkson humour but it just doesn't work.
If you are looking to buy a TG DVD for Christmas get the Clarkson Duel one or The Challenges Vol3. This DVD is one you will watch once then never look at again, well I won't anyway.

5.0 out of 5 stars TG at its best 22 Nov 2009
By Rolly
Format:DVD
I admit to being a big fan of Top Gear. I bought this not sure what to expect, and I have to say I really enjoyed it. A few laugh out loud moments (check out the Ice cream hover craft - hilarious!!) and also some really gorgeous bits - like the dakar race in the desert and the wonderful supercar stuff in Italy. TOTALLY recommend this to any TG fan.

2.0 out of 5 stars Aimed at 10 year olds 14 Jan 2010
Format:DVD
If you're thinking of buying this for the humour and high production values you see in Top Gear, don't bother. This DVD is clearly aimed at ten year olds, who will be impressed by the low budget stunts and the C-BBC presentation Richard Hammond delivers. I found it cringingly embarrassing to watch and gave up about half way through. I only paid 3.99 for my copy from Asda and it was still a waste of money...

3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 30 Dec 2009
Format:DVD
As a Top Gear fan I was looking forward to this DVD, however I must admit to feeling a little cheated. At only 63 minutes long it falls well short of my expectations and the content isn't up to much either. Apparently Hammond intends to show us in a lighthearted Top Gear way how to become a Top Gear presenter. I will admit there is some entertainment value in here but frankly it's not enough, it looks like the nicest of the three presenters has finally sold out and scrambled a DVD onto the shelves with the sole intention of cashing in on the Christmas panic. I'm not impressed..........
