Get better soon Hamster !

It was one of the moments when I double check what you've heard on the news. Not because I don't believe Richard Hammond could crash a car, but because its about someone I like and would really miss if he wasn't around any more.

Top Gear (BBC2 in the UK), in its new format, isn't just about cars but a strange sort of friendship with the viewers and audience. Its the next best thing to a drink down the pub with a really good friend.

On a number of occasions its really cheered me up with its brand of mayhem, humour, and politically incorrect irreverence.

Richard's also been great in Brainiac - the program that interests more kids in science than all the previous government programs and initiatives put together.

Get well Richard - and make it soon. I hope your family are soon able to relax a bit knowing your making a good recovery.

TG is a great programme for blokes of all sexes. The Hamster is an integral part and of course, my thoughts, like many others are with him and his family at this time.
