Top Gear gets YouTube channel

Topgear has launched its own channel on Google's YouTube.

The Top Gear channel is the first-ever on the video-sharing website to be dedicated solely to one BBC programme. It offers classic clips from the BBC motoring show presented by Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.

A race between a Bugatti Veyron and a light aircraft, and a challenge that saw the three presenters purchasing second-hand Porsches for £1,500, are among the videos available on the website.

"Top Gear has a massive audience across the globe so we thought it was time it had its own place on YouTube. The BBC Worldwide YouTube channel has already proven its value to users, having generated millions of views since its launch in March last year," said Simon Danker, director of Digital Media for BBC Worldwide

Content from other shows featuring the presenters, including Jeremy Clarkson's MotorWorld and Richard Hammond Meets Evel Knievel, is also available on the channel. Footage of Richard Hammond's infamous jet car crash is notably absent from the website.
