It was a pretty crass show - the whole "trade mission" bollocks was unncecessary. They could have done a really good trans-India road trip that would have been interesting and funny. I'm with the Indian High Commission on this one.
If anyone is due an apology it is the audience, for having to watch such crass arrant nonsense.
It was Clarkson cowboyish behaviour that was the joke, serving marmite on digestives to Dehlis great and the good.
The Indians turning up at the reception in their Bentleys, Lambos etc had the last laugh at the Top Gate motley crew, who were completely situationally unaware of how Asias ascendency has made Jeremy's jingoism just sound base and irrelevant in today's world.
The BBC should be embarrassed by what they aired, and the High Commission will be mending fences for some time to come.
Britain is increasingly becoming inconsequential in the sub-continent and this televisual trivia does a disservice to the BBC, which still has some standing in India thanks to the like of Tully-sahib.
