In The Grand Tour: Sand Job, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May reunite in the remote African country of Mauritania, following in the footsteps of the legendary Paris-Dakar rally. Instead of bespoke Dakar racers, the boys must complete their journey in cheap modified sports cars.

Their journey begins with the world’s longest train and sees them tackle the killer Sahara and perilous river crossings whilst protecting their precious fuel bowser from exploding. Battling scorching temperatures and unforgiving sand terrain, filming this special was a true test for both the presenters and their cars.

Jeremy opts for a Jaguar F Type V6, Richard too goes British with an Aston Martin Volante V12, whilst James takes a punt on Italy with a Maserati. The boys report to the northern part of Mauritania, inside the perilous Foreign Office Red Zone, where they must rendezvous with their cars, which are delivered courtesy of the world’s longest iron ore train, a 1.2-mile monster that travels this country’s only railway line.

From there, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May strike out into the Sahara, heading south for Senegal and the famous finish line on the beach of Dakar. Along the way, they must descend treacherous ravines by cable, James must battle mysterious sand storms that threaten his car, they must build unusual and ingenious devices to help their cars cope with the car-killing roads, and they must extract themselves from a deadly minefield.

Also, given they are in the Sahara in one of the least populated countries in the world, they have to travel with their own fuel bowser, which they must protect at all costs, from being blown up. Having conquered the Sahara, our heroes’ problems are far from over.

In order to reach Senegal, they must make a perilous river crossing across a river with no bridge. Now fully able to travel to far-flung and exotic places, the boys are back at their best, with the incredible backdrop of Mauritania providing a spectacular setting for one of their most action-packed adventures yet.

In UK original Clarkson’s Farm Season 3, audiences can expect in-depth, authentic, and unexpected trials and tribulations as Jeremy, Lisa, Kaleb, Gerald, and Cheerful Charlie tackle the ever-unpredictable world of British farming.

The third series of Clarkson’s Farm finds Diddly Squat facing some seriously daunting challenges. The crops are failing in the severe hot weather; inflation has driven prices of supplies sky high, dreams for the beloved restaurant are dashed, and now the farm shop also faces closure.

Jeremy urgently needs to come up with creative new ways of making ends meet, so he hatches a plan to turn a profit from hundreds of acres of unfarmed land – thick woodland and hedgerows that make up half of Diddly Squat. This triggers an avalanche of Clarkson-crafted schemes involving everything from goats and pigs to mushrooms, nettles, and deer.

Someone new arrives at Diddly Squat, which puts Kaleb’s nose out of joint. The returning characters are all working to help Jeremy’s farming ambitions come to fruition.

Clarkson’s Farm is produced by Expectation and is executive produced by Peter Fincham and Andy Wilman. Zoe Brewer is the director of production, and Peter Richardson is the series producer.

Production has also commenced on a fourth series of the Prime Video UK Original Clarkson’s Farm.
