There was a spin-off book with write up of some episodes, complete with a “Don’t Try This At Home!” warning at the front.

Reply Richard16378 July 22, 2016 at 12:42 am Peter tried driving a modified VW Beetle at sea (can’t remember if it was the Channel or the Irish Sea) but it sunk on the way. Reply Joanne Gray February 11, 2017 at 1:53 pm I think it was the Channel. Easy to see where the Top Gear lads got their inspiration from.
