Simply brilliant Bow down

I think that presenter gifted his clothes to Oxfam because I'm wearing them now... Tell someone you love them today because life is short.
But shout it at them in German because life is also terrifying and confusing...

That was fantastic. The helicopter actions shots were particularly impressive.

In a development Range Rover - nothing like getting out there, really test the vehicle and having the confidence to fail in public.

The current senior management should look at this and contrast with their gravy train approach to showing the world the new defender is tough.

1972, I think (I won't say "I remember it well")! Llangollen station looked a bit different then!
