E221: Richard Hammond: The heartbreaking conversation that I am STILL avoiding!

Lying in a week-long coma after being involved in a car crash at 300 miles per hour, you may wonder about the life path that led Richard Hammond to that hospital bed and the personality behind his miraculous recovery.

From a short school boy desperate for attention to one of the nation's favourite trio of petrol heads, Richard has always been either driven or driving. Despite labelling himself just a very lucky guy and thinking success was for other people, his infectious enthusiasm has made him a national icon.

In this wide-ranging conversation, Richard discusses everything from why "Top Gear" was the success it was, what he saw on the brink of death, and why cars have always had such a deep emotional appeal to him.
