    Default Top Gear on BBC HD from November 15th

    Hello All,

    I wanted to share with you at the earliest opportunity the news that from November 15th you will be able to see Top Gear in its true colours.

    Yes, after several hundred emails from you as to why you feel Top Gear needs to make the journey from the SD to the HD world, I can confirm that the team is now working with HD cameras on the new series.

    You've been very clear that this is a BBC programme that for you represents the best of what we do, and that you believe it is one of those series that can benefit most from HD. I agree with you, and I'm confident that the shift will ensure that the cars are glossier and faster than ever, and the presenters... well, probably will look even more like their reflections in the mirror but we'll all have to wait to judge.

    I have said for some time now that what the BBC is aiming to do in HD is to extend the range of programming that is available, to showcase programmes that are loved in SD, and to explore the creative potential of the new technology. Top Gear helps us to do all of this, but it's not the end of the BBC HD story, just one further link in the transition chain that will over time see the vast majority of programmes made by the BBC shifting into HD.

    Meantime, steady yourselves and tell your friends.

    Great news, the best series the BBC does now in HD.

    Bad news though. The next series will indeed be HD. But the next series won't be on till 2010.

    They said it's because they ran out of cars. But I suspect it's more to do with that they have run out of money. If you notice in this series just passed they really didn't do anything totally spectacular. The last big thing that they did was Vietnam.

    though I will concede that the race to Edinburgh was spectacular. But compared to some of the races they have done it does feel like the cheapest one they've staged as it was at home.

    But looks like we will have to wait till next year to see the boys mucking about in cars

    It must be cost more to film and edit in HD I would imagine, saying that I’m sure the BBC has all the equipment needed anyway!

    In this series there supposed to be doing something like the Italian Job driving through sewers in Northern Ireland, don’t know how true it is... it was reported they were filming it in July. Link

    It will be worth the wait i’m sure
