This time around, they’ll be tackling a giant Wall of Death in old insurance write-offs, downhill skiing in holiday hire cars, unveiling a go-anywhere fully electric powered ice-cream van for the twenty-first century, and attempting to survive 24 hours in their cars. In Bolton.

All topped off with Top Gear’s traditional condiments – exotic supercars, fast laps and The Stig – and brought to you from the show’s new studio set-up: a drive-in studio on the Top Gear test track.

Small Axe (5 films)

From Monday 16th November at 20:00 on BBC Brit

Steve McQueen's Small Axe anthology
Small Axe

Small Axe is an anthology, which comprises five original films by Academy Award, BAFTA, and Golden Globe-winning filmmaker Steve McQueen (Hunger, Shame, 12 Years A Slave, Widows). Set from the late 1960s to the mid-1980s, the films each tell a different story involving London’s West Indian community, whose lives have been shaped by their own force of will, despite rampant racism and discrimination. Even though this collection of films is set some decades ago, the stories are as vital and timely today as they were for the West Indian community in London at the time.

Small Axe is a celebration of Black joy, beauty, love, friendship, family, music and even food; each one, in its own unique way, conveys hard-won successes, bringing hope and optimism for 2020.

Actress, presenter and much-loved travelling companion Joanna Lumley returns with this brand new three-part series, to share her previously unseen travelling adventures. Joanna goes back as far east as Japan and all across the world to Cuba in the west, to share her treasure trove of unseen stories and give viewers an insight into how her travel programmes are made and why she loves to make them.

Featuring behind the scenes footage and outtakes, we join Joanna at home as she recalls some of her most memorable journeys and hidden gems from her travels. The series offers viewers the chance to escape back to some incredible countries and enjoy their breath-taking scenery, with the added joy of witnessing what really happened along the way – from translation struggles, to filming with an overzealous dog and the challenges of extreme weather conditions.

“I’ve been lucky enough to visit some incredible places over the years. Travel is my passion, it’s in my blood. What you eventually see on your screen takes weeks to shoot and months to edit and we didn’t always have time to show you everything we filmed. We have kept the unseen stories safe and now I can reveal this treasure trove!” Joanna Lumley
