QI with Ross Noble, Dara O’Briain And Jeremy Clarkson

I don’t know how long this will be up for…

Part two and Part three.

“EXPLAINATION OF WHAT’S GOING ON

The BBC opted to remove this episode from the schedules on day of broadcast as Clarkson is currently involved in a controversy over remarks he made about recent strikes in the UK on “The One Show” (search YouTube for it). However, the change came so late that the episode was still uploaded to the BBC iPlayer, which is where Nick got it.”

    That was quite pleasant, thank you. Watching five intelligent people discussing whatever pops up in their minds was fun. I also liked the clips of Clarkson test-driving the car.

    • Kylie Sturgess

      I. Couldn’t. BELIEVE how bad that car was. How on earth did that get anywhere near acceptance as roadworthy?

    • ‘Tis Himself, OM

      On the other hand, I could believe the story about how the Health & Safety people stripped everything movable from the car’s interior, including Clarkson’s cigarettes and lighter, but kept the steel punch inside.

  • Graham Martin-Royle

    I was really pissed off yesterday when I tuned in only to find it was a repeat. Thanks.

      You must have been even more pissed off knowing (as I hope you do) that the whole controversy over Jeremy Clarkson’s statement has been way overblown since he was largely taken out of context. It’s pretty clear from seeing the whole transcript or watching the whole segment from The One Show that he was mocking the sense of “balance” that the media (if not the BBC specifically) so often requires (even giving, as he says, “two views”). I don’t really care for him, frankly, but this whole kerfluffle is beyond absurd.

    NickFromFulham is a god!

  • Paul

    I wish the BBC would grow a pair. The comments made by Clarkson were indeed taken out of context. So obviously so that giving way to the mob stupidity that followed is worse than anything said in the interview. Stupidity-1 The rest of us-0.
