For a large chunk of 2016 I have been writing and filming a new series with Tom Ford for BBC Worldwide called Motorheads. Due out in autumn on a channel yet to be confirmed (the Beeb play their cards close to their corporate chest) the series is born around the vast amount of uploaded video clips featuring everything from redneck motorsport and terrible parking, to unemployed IT people in the Netherlands converting their car to drive using a phone for €1000.
Think of it, then, as a vehicular Russell Howard’s Good News mashed with Harry Hill’s TV Burp. But with some car-based experiments and japes. Rest assured we had a dollop of laughs making the series.
I’ll be the first person to admit that my blogging frequency is weak these days, as the most interaction takes place via my Twitter and Insta accounts. A completely new Carpervert site is about 5 years overdue, but finally in the pipeline as I write this. And yes, it will include much more car content, not to mention the odd retro mower, aquarium or Tamiya RC model. Just because.
