Former Top Gear executive producer, Andy Wilman, sat down for a 34 minute interview with an audience for the Edinburgh International Television Festival and broke down a bunch of insight into the making of The Grand Tour and his fun stories with the boys, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May.

Legal Limitations The Grand Tour Face to Avoid BBC

Wilman breaks down some rumors and let’s us in behind the BBC walls:

  • The rumors of £4 Million per episode budgets are “bollocks”
  • The real reasons Jeremy Clarkson got sacked
  • There were no plans to go anywhere when Jeremy was sacked
  • Partnering with Amazon was purely “just money” (joking)

Overall, it’s a great video to watch and really gets fans riled up in anticipation of the upcoming show.
