5th Gear - It's back!! - Dynamic Dave
Yes, new series - Tonight. Channel 5, 8:30pm.

Crash testing; where cars are driven into one another while being operated by remote control. Sounds good.

operated by remote control. Sounds good.


But it would be even better if only one of the cars was remote controlled and the other was being driven by Quentin Wilson.

There is also a crash involving the Hillman family on ITV1 also at 8.30pm which will get the majority of the viewers......

How about a Virgin train with the entire cast of every soap and Branson driving?

Steve,

I am not certain what an oxymoron is -but I suspect that Coronation Street and Virgin might be near enough?

Who's Mark Evans?
I don't get channel 5, or watch anything on ITV apart from local news. However, living in N Ireland I get the Irish channels. I saw the "new" series of the Sopranos way before E4 got their hands on it. Same with ER - I'm about 12 weeks ahead so far.
And (hears Mark sharpening his scissors) I get to watch the Irish motoring programme which is imaginatively entitled "Drive". Not too bad, actually, but a little tame. Apart from reviewing cars, it looks at wider motoring issues, safer driving, etc, as well as doing things like following a week in the life of a keen (female) driver on a budget who rented a Ferrari for that one week. She made some interesting observations about attitudes displayed towards her in the car park!

Who's Mark Evans?


A former TV Vet who went on to present tv shows on the Satellite station "Discovery Home And Leisure"

Show titles listed below, and he basically gets to build or restore the following at no expense to himself I imagine,

A Car is Born - AC Cobra V8 kit car.
A Car is Reborn - 1965 Series 1.1, 4.2 Litre E-Type Jaguar.
A Plane is Born - Europa Tri-Gear.
A chopper is Born - Rotor-craft Helicopter.
A Racing Car is Born - Westfield 1800.

Mark Evans really is a jammy git.
