Remember even though it's on BBC HD, it's upscaled SD, not HD, as far as I know (based on the fact it doesn't have HD next to it in the info banner on the guide)

The polar special is a true HD broadcast and not upscaled SD, the quality of it the first time round was fantastic compared to the SD version. As I forgot to record it last time (doh) I have set up the record remotely so I dont forget.

Was good but not as good as the american one.

I wonder if that will be shown in HD ever.

That was the funniest car programme ever!

Thought this was brilliant - superb pic quality and the sheer idiocy of the three of them made for an excellent show. Even my wife enjoyed it ;)

Say what you like though - James May certainly knows how to travel well with his g&t, chablis and pate de fois gras. Who else would take what appeared to be a Fortnum and Masons hamper to the North Pole.:thumbsup:

I second that. Polar special was good but the American episode was better.

It would be nice if the BBC surprised us and broadcasted more HD. :(
