  • Jeremy Clarkson Meets the Neighbours

    Mondays at 8:30pm from August 11

    Armed with little more than his prejudices, and the obligatory fast car, Jeremy heads off to continental Europe. After a series of near-death experiences on the roads of Paris, he discovers he quite likes the French, really. And the Belgians are OK. But his views on the Spanish and the Germans are almost unrepeatable. Zipping about in an E-type Jaguar, Clarkson asks the questions most of us would never dare to utter, and discovers some surprising insights about fellow nationals - as well as his own neighbouring Brits.
