New T.V programmes

If work or the weather is stopping you getting out; there are a couple of new T.V. programmes that may be of interest.

First up; the wacky trio from Top Gear are planning a 450 mile trip to the magentic North pole.

Being Top Gear the mode of transport is going to be a little out of the ordinary, Clarkson and May will be using a specially converted vehicle while Hammond will be using a team of 10 Canadian Inuit dogs.

The challenge is to see who will reach the pole first.

This is showing on Wednesday 25, 8pm on BBC Two and Sunday 29, 8pm on BBC Two.

The Second programme is Mountain with Griff Rhys Jones. This is a five part series and Jones will be walking/climbing in the main areas of the U.K. By the look of things two episodes will be in Scotland with the rest in Wales, the Lakes and the Pennines.

There is no confirmed time for this yet but it looks like it will start on Sunday 29 July on BBC One
