Jeremy Clarkson launches a scathing attack on the BBC, insisting that they would not make Clarkson’s Farm.
JEREMY CLARKSON claimed that despite the new farming series’ enormous success on Amazon videos, the BBC would not make Clarkson’s Farm.
Jeremy Clarkson had a turbulent relationship with the BBC, and after departing, he went on to host his famous Amazon Prime series Clarkson’s Farm. The host recently stated that he proposed it to the BBC during his tenure there and was told that the farming series would not be made.
The BBC dropped Jeremy in 2015 after he was found guilty of a “unprovoked physical and verbal abuse” that left a member of staff bleeding and requiring medical treatment.
After it was revealed that the presenter had subjected TV producer Oisin Tymon to a 30-second physical attack following a heated disagreement, they stated he had “stepped the line.”
Richard Hammond and James May, who co-hosted Top Gear with him, both left the network after his departure.
In 2015, the three signed a deal with Amazon Prime for their motoring series, The Grand Tour.
Away from vehicles, Jeremy hosts Clarkson’s Farm, an agricultural show set on his land in the Cotswolds.
The show is also available on Amazon Prime, and it quickly became a fan favorite among viewers since they got to see the host branch out from his typical specialization and master a new talent.
The series followed Jeremy as he learnt everything there was to know about the sector with the help of Kaleb Cooper, a 21-year-old farm manager.
In the first season, he had to deal with erratic weather, unruly animals, and complex technology.
Fans found it funny to witness Jeremy get warned off by the 21-year-old everytime he messed up on the show, which was filled with laughter and banter.
In an interview with Giles Coren on Times Radio, the Top Gear host stated that the BBC rejected the notion of Clarkson’s Farm.
“When I bought the property in 2008, I proposed the agricultural idea to the BBC, and all they cared about was where it would have been made,” he said.
“They didn’t want to since the production office would be in London,” Jeremy explained. “I asked them two or three times and they always said, ‘Can’t you make the production office in Scotland?’
“Well, no, that would be foolish, therefore it was never commissioned by the BBC; I have no idea what they were trying to do, and I wasn’t going to help them,” he continued.
