Clarkson: The Greatest Raid of All Sunday 8pm BBC2

#1
Couldn't decide if this was best placed in Films and Literature or Military History, I figured here was a good compromise.

Anyway, Jeremy Clarkson is doing a documentary on Operation: Chariot, the St. Nazaire Raid and I caught some highlights of it just now.

Looks like it'll be good viewing.

Understandable, but a great pity cdo_gunner gives away the real 'hit' in the very last few seconds of the programme.

If you read this cdo_gunner, any chance you could edit your post?

Anything by Clarkson tends to be worth reading/watching. The man's a breath of non-PC fresh air.

(Now, where did I put my birch? Ah! So you have it, Jeremy.)

Ah, I think we've just got to the heart of your objections to Clarkson. "Four wheels good, two wheels bad!"

At least the man has a point of view, whether you agree with it or not. Most journos just sit on the fence and babble weasel words. Personally, I like him . . .

He's that - and quite a clever man, in fact, although he hides a lot of it behind the buffoonery.

It'll be interesting to see what he makes of Sunday's opportunity.

"and I thought, I'll have to escape at some point. I don't feel up to it at the moment"

After being shot by a sniper!!

Pure courage.

Like him or loathe him, at least Clarkson appears to be genuinely interested in the story he's telling. Good show so far. Struck with how matter of fact a lot of these old fellas are about their exploits. Humbling
