New Top Gear

I know it's really popular here, so I wondered if anyone's seen the first episode of the nes series yet, recorded on Tuesday of last week and aired on Sunday.

VERY emotional. Fantastic opening, great banter and gripping coverage of THAT crash.

I downloaded the torrent from this address:

Re: New Top Gear

Nope. I only have BBC Prime and they're not showing it now. .

I wonnder if it's on the Turbo channel?

Can the whole programme be downloaded from that link? Virus free?

BBC hinted that the crash was Hammond's fault a few days back.

Apparently BBC is asserting copyright so this may be pulled before you see it

Re: New Top Gear

Even better than the old series. Tonight great more language and sexual inuendoes.

Re: New Top Gear

Si - If you've got a torrent client, it's totally safe.

It's the full, hour long programme. I'll be downloading yesterday's in a mo. It won't be on Turbo for a couple of months.

Re: New Top Gear

How does a torrent client work? I tried to download the file here - www.finalgear.com -
and nothing

Re: New Top Gear

http://download.utorrent.com/1.6/uTorrent-1.6-install.exe

follow that link and then install the utorrent client when it downloads.

Then go back to the link you provided and it should automatically download.

Let me know if things don't go according to plan.

Re: New Top Gear

I am sure I am not the only woman who loves this programme. I find clarkson really entertaining. They actually make a show about cars really fun and interesting to watch. I did catch some of last week's episode with the return of Richard hammond and his embarassing walk down babe-lined stairs.

Re: New Top Gear

He's very outspoken, but his opinionated articles at timesonline.co.uk can be useful for provocative discussion lessons.

Re: New Top Gear

Thanks, Mark, I'll give it a try in a moment. How about that Land Rover?

Re: New Top Gear

That's a no-no at the moment. Need a new family car more than a weekend toy, unfortunately.

Re: New Top Gear

How about a Discovery or Range Rover - the perfect family car and offroader .

Re: New Top Gear

Do you have the English language version of torrent? When I download, even though I select English, I'm getting the Polish version. Maybe it's something to do with the fact I have the Polish language version of Windows?

Re: New Top Gear

Can't you select the language version when installing, or change it after?

Re: New Top Gear

Nope.

Even if English is selected it seems to install the Polish version and later it's impossible to change. I downloaded the first top gear programme. How do you play the film itself ? The obvious right-facing arrow button doesn't work, neither does clicking or double clicking on the title

Re: New Top Gear

Be careful about viruses.

Re: New Top Gear

If you downloaded the .avi file, you should be able to play it in any media player. Was it a different kind of file?

Re: Re: New Top Gear

Can anyone explain how to get this torrent thing to work?

Re: New Top Gear

Can anyone explain how to get this torrent thing to work?

Same problem with Polish.

Re: New Top Gear

To get torrents to work:

You need two things: a torrent downloader (I recommend uTorrent, google it) and a torrent file (searchable and downloadable from many many websites, like thepiratebay, uknova; again, google is your friend here.)

Download the torrent file, open it with your torrent downloader program, sit back and watch it download the program, song, video or other to your PC. It'll let you know when the download's complete (which could take hours or weeks, depending on how popular the file is.) Once it's on your PC, open it with Windows Media Player or similar.

Re: New Top Gear

Victor, You can change the language in the options section of utorrent. As our mystery guest says you can download all the best British TV on UKnova. They also have a rock music radio station, which I often listen to when I'm not listening to BBC radio 4 .

Cyfra Plus switched off BBC Prime yesterday, which probably means I'll end up using tvnova a lot more ...

Haven't worked out how to watch my torrent programmes on my big screen tv, yet, though. I suppose I'd have to burn them onto DVD ...?

Re: New Top Gear

Thanks.

It seems to take a very long time to download programmes.

Why I wonder would anyone in the UK use this system?

Re: New Top Gear

Hilarious threats and replies concerning the Swedish torrent website mentioned earlier.

Re: New Top Gear

I read that Britain now plans to remove internet access for people who use torrents and share files.
