What’s in Sunday’s show?

Show 1: the details

Anybody read the papers this week? You may have come across a few choice headlines: ‘TopGear gets serious’, ‘Angry BBC bosses order TopGear to tone down crazy stunts’, ‘TopGear headed for scrapheap – current line-up to be replaced’, ‘Monkey breaks Nurburgring lap record in Prius’, ‘Clarkson causes massive sinkhole in Reading’.
