The idea started a few years ago when I recorded myself and comedian David Baddiel when he gave me a lift through London. The resulting tape was very funny because we soon forgot the camera was there and just chatted away, revealing far more than we would ever have done in a normal TV situation. That tape now resides in my safe. Far too explicit for public consumption.
I started experimenting in the middle of 2008, recording members of my family on various short trips. I tried different camera positions until I settled on the arrangement I use now. One camera in the rear and two in the front pointing at both passenger and driver.
Many episodes have already been recorded and are up for airing on his site with guests such as TV’s Lt. Rimmer (Chris Barrie), Dave Lister (Craig Charles), and more. Both of those are embedded after the break.
