New Series on National Geographic Channel
« on: January 10, 2008, 21:24:42 PM »
Dear all,

On the Friday of the Silverstone GP weekend last summer I did some filming for a new program  entitled "what would happen if?" Basically like a UK version of Mythbusters. They called on me for some car security myths to be busted, but whilst I was on location I witnessed one of their other experiments - seeing if cars really explode when they go off cliffs like in the movies by dropping 3 Mondeo's from a 150ft crane onto concrete with their engines running - the last experiment included filling the car with lit barbecues!

Anyway it airs at 5pm on Sunday on National Geographic - not sure if I'm in the first episode as no one from the TV company has had the good grace to call me!

Anyway here's one of the Mondeo's after it was dropped...

Simon.

PS I video'd one of the drops if anyone's interested...

Will do - LOL - what made it worse is that I watched it on a 42" widescreen - made me look even more of a fatter bastard than I am LOL.
