Top Gear (TV Series 1978–2002) Poster



In 2001 due to falling ratings, the BBC chose to axe the show. Channel 5 then decided to revive the show with the then current presenters (Quentin Willson, Vicki Butler-Henderson and Tiff Needell ). Because BBC owns the name rights, the show had to be renamed 5th Gear (2002). The show was only revived (Top Gear (2002)) because Jeremy Clarkson was considered to be the most popular presenter of them all and many people had considered his absence to be the cause of the demise of the show.
