Top Gear: Series 12, Episode 1

Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May decide to buy second-hand lorries despite knowing almost nothing about the world of trucks, and then set about discovering how easy it is to be an HGV driver. Which turns out to be a lot harder than they thought.

Jeremy is also on the test track with a scary Porsche 911, a tame Lamborghini Gallardo and a surprisingly talented Labrador.

Chat show legend Michael Parkinson is the Star in a Reasonably Priced Car.
