The new series shifts gears completely, kicking off with all new presenters. Radio DJ and former ‘Big Breakfast’ presenter Chris Evans and ‘Friends’ superstar Matt LeBlanc, will be taking the wheel as the new hosts of the huge BBC production.
The new series will see the two stars pressing the pedal to the metal as they put everything from, Reliant Robins (which prove not to be so reliant) to Dodge Vipers to the test. Even the fan favourite, ‘Star in a reasonably priced car’ has had a revamp, audiences can now look forward to celebrities sliding, stalling and generally just getting stuck, in the all new, ‘Star in a rally cross car’.
The show has had many changes, but still features all the crazy chaotic creativity that fans love. The new series promises to be bigger, better and more exciting with nail biting stunts that may even leave the Stig lost for words.
This series of Top Gear marked the first time the show has used tapeless record technology. Specialising in EVS and Avid integration, Hyperactive Broadcast were the first port of call when it came to adopting tapeless record.
Hyperactive Broadcast supplied several edit systems to the BBC production. Each system was assembled by our team of expert avid engineers, who took time ensuring that every system operated at the best possible standards.
Our engineers James Fishwick and Tommy Roberts supervised the production, supplying exceptional technical support and guidance throughout the entire production of Top Gear. Both engineers aided editors around the clock, even helping them create quick turn around footage that had to be shot, captured and edited on the same day. This was no small task but with the combined knowledge of two seasoned engineers, bundled with Hyperactives top of the line equipment, the new series of Top Gear aired with out any issues.
