Jeremy Clarkson's Motorworld
8.30pm BBC2 "In Tokyo you can turn your car into a mobile television studio, but the jams mean you can't go anywhere in it," says Jeremy Clarkson as he watches a Japanese soap on TV while sitting immobile in a congested street.
Japan is the first country Clarkson visits in this new series that looks at different motoring cultures around the world. As well as discovering the delights of in-car karaoke machines, he meets a Japanese monk who runs a vintage Bentley and a bunch of "drifters" who practise their driving skills at the dead of night. Among the places visited in future programmes are Detroit (once the hub of the motor industry), Italy where five of the world's glamour manufacturers are located in just one town, and India where cars are blessed to keep them safe.
