4.0 out of 5 stars Oliver!!!!, 23 Mar. 2009
This review is from: Top Gear - The Great Adventures 2 [DVD] (DVD)
Yep, they're back to their tricks again. The 2 dvd's come in seperate cases, one for each adventure, and are bound in a cardboard case. 1st disk is the brilliant Botswana adventure with a few added scenes that aren't on the television version. Great picture and served up with a stereo soundtrack, the extra's are limited to behind the scenes photo's, a commentary soundtrack and some very amusing deleted scenes.
2nd serving is the Vietnam adventure, again a few scenes not in the TV edition, with similar quality picture and sound. The extras are also the same fare, and this time we get to meet The Stigs communist cousin! This would have got 5 stars had they not changed the soundtracks, the music used on both TV versions seemed more evocative and had more impact.
All in all though, over 2hrs of good hilarious antics that we've all come to expect from Clarckson, Hammond and May.

Thanks for the info on the soundtrack changes; it's a shame but some tracks are clearable for TV but not for DVD and it's the programme makers job to make the best programme they can NOT make the programme that will be the same on TV and DVD so they almost always choose to go with the best they can for the TV and change it if necessary for the DVD release.
