Go Behind the Scenes with Top Gear Vietnam

Monday, April 23rd, 2012

Sister company Hanuman Films was the local production company for the BBC’s legendary Vietnam special in 2008.  Check out some behind-the-scenes footage of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May as they travelled north on their motorbikes.

Top Gear is one of the BBC’s best known programmes. The Vietnam special involved an epic bike journey from Saigon to Hanoi: Jeremy Clarkson on a Vespa, Richard Hammond on a Minsk and James May on a Honda Cub. The show ends with the conversion of the bikes into amphibious boats to explore Halong Bay, surely the first and last time anyone explores this magnificent world heritage site by motorbike! It was quite a James Bond experience filming with six speedboats and a helicopter to capture all the angles. Nick Ray worked as Line Producer on the shoot and coordinated everything from filming permissions to motorbikes and amphibious with a team of up to 15 in Vietnam. The shoot was a great success and the show received rave reviews in the UK press and around the world.

So if you have any interest from motorbikers or Top Gear enthusiasts wanting to follow in the biketreads of Clarkson and Co, be sure to contact Hanuman as we made it possible for the BBC and know all the right contacts along the way to recreate their epic adventure.
