    Regarding Top Gear, I largely gave up on it when it stopped being a show about "real" cars and driving issues and just became a show for JC and mates to muck about, almost a comedy show really. I remember the old shows with, I think, William Woolard as presenter--that was a serious show where you could actually learn something.

    About the BL cars...agreed that there was some good engineering, but they had so many industrial problems in the 70s and 80s that the company became a source for derision, which really hurt it. So many comedians made jokes about them back then.

    Is there a name for this type of TV programme? I call it a pseudocomedy.
