Looks like I'm going to have to wait:

Currently BBC iPlayer TV programmes are available to play in the UK only, but all BBC iPlayer Radio programmes are available to you.

Just use a UK based proxy server.

Google 'UK proxy server' and use the one with the lowest latency. Configure your browser with the proxy settings.

Don't you guys get BBC channels in NZ? I would have thought you would seeing you are subjects of the crown etc.

it's strange - just as i read this the news summary at 9 on channel 5 leads with a story about jemery clarkson making fun of lorry drivers killing prostitutes.

i ready hate jc and that little guy too, they both have really irritating speech impediments - when jemery clarkson takes a breath he makes a really stupid sucking sound so you can hear all the phlem in his mouth and the little guy sounds like he's got a blocked up nose.

There was a thing on the local TV about Top Gear coming to NZ, with Clarkson appearing in person, maybe I can check that out too.

I love top gear, just watched the new episode.

I usually download them or watch them on megavideo.

I don't like watching tv on normal hours, nor do I care to record it.

Yes, I love Top Gear.

I've been stuck watching the kinda lame Top Gear Australia, no offense to the aussie's.

They call "seasons" "series" in Britain?

In the US we use "series" to refer to the show in its entirety, not a single year's worth of episodes. When I saw an episode the other day and they said that the series is coming to a close I was highly disappointed.

Yeah, we call them series, except for US imported shows which are seasons.

But I digress, top gear was awesome, especially when Clarkson's van set on fire and Hammond's car escaped

clarkson and the little guy are the two people i dislike most on tv. i'd never seen top gear, but started watching it because there are so many repeats and realised i love to hate them lol

i like how they think they're really funny, the little guy drove off twice without attaching the lorry load lol, it was so obvious he was going to do that, i love it.

i've even started pretending to laugh at their jokes, i just hope i don't end up in a mental institution because i'm not sure that's normal lol

That baffles me too . . . and they have 2 of such "series" within an year. Usually, other American soaps, like LOST, have an year's gap between 2 of its "seasons"

Same here. Although BBC does air here in India, I don't know when Top Gear is on it. Moreover, people will think I am a freak for watching it.

You see, in India, people will never be able to get their heads around 3 blokes setting things on fire just for fun. The only thing Indian people like watching on TV are family soaps with mother-in-laws setting their daughter-in-laws on fire. Trust me!

If you are a girl (in the photo), and you hate Top Gear (& cars), I completely understand.

But, if you are a guy and you don't like Top Gear, WHATS WRONG WITH YOU??


Just Joking. Please don't get me banned from this forum.

But, if ice60 is a girl, surely she would like Hammond? I thought all girls liked Hammond. My little sister certainly does! (although, she also loves cars and Top Gear)
