And On That Bombshell - Richard Porter

Chris Hayes published on

This week we're joined by former BBC Top Gear Sript Wizard (Supervisor) Richard Porter (@SniffPetrol)! His new book, And On That Bombshell, chronicles his 13 years working on Top Gear. We tell him about Californian methamphetamime production, and he tells us all about how Top Gear was made, including Richard Hammond's skills at entering strip clubs.

    Really splitting hairs here - UHF was released in 1989 and is about him being given a TV station by his gambling uncle who is still alive, he almost loses the station as his uncle is trying to pay off a gambling debt. Amazingly funny movie!
