Those of you lucky enough to have BBC World probably have watched the excellent show: Top Gear. It is no longer available BBC World in North America so I'm guessing some other channel has the rights.

Anyway, I just read that Richard Hammond, the young (36) Top Gear presenter, was critically injurd driving 300 mph (480 kph) in the UK.

First the Crocodile Hunter, now this guy.

********UPDATE 2006-09-21, 18:44 (Halifax Time)*****************

The poor guy is in stable condition, but suffers from brain damage...

A simple Google search informed me that Top Gear on BBC World is preempted in Canada because it plays on BBC Canada on Saturday and Sunday at 19:00.

Top Gear is preempted on BBC World in the USA because an American version (with American presenters) has been produced. The Discover Channel showed at least one episode last winter. But it is not scheduled this Fall.

It’s the entertaining car show that always full of wacky challenges and all Top Gear Episodes has combine standard road tests and opinions with an extremely unusual circumstance.
