60 Minutes visits Top Gear UK

As car enthusiasts, you and I can do nothing but lament the lack of exposure and coverage of Top Gear UK in the US of Americaland. Sure there are ways to view full episodes of Top Gear over the Internetz. And yes there”s Top Gear USA on the way in November but some of us can”t imagine it being all that good. But of course, I personally am giving it the benefit of doubt. Either way, the most successful program in US television history, or the one that”s home to Dan Rather, Walter Cronkite, and Christiane Amanpour, will be featuring Top Gear UK.

Nothing went uncovered as Steve Kroft and the crew explores things while season 15 was being filmed, such as Jezza”s house, to the production office, a ride with the Stig (who I guess we all know is Ben Collins now”¦), an interview with Top Gear UK boss Andy Wilman and much more.

Tune in to 60 Minutes on Sunday, 10/24/10 at 7pm EST on CBS, grab your popcorn/coffee/dinner/beer/whiskey/girlfriend/friends/laptop/hooker”¦ok you get the idea”¦and watch as 60 Minutes uncovers some secrets and behind the scenes to Jezza, Hamster, Captain Slow and the most famous motoring show in the world.
