James May and his director, Tom Whitter, have been working together for over a decade now, putting together such shows as 'Man Lab', 'Cars Of The People' and 'Our Man In Japan'. So we thought we'd sit them both down and get them reminiscing about the good (and bad) times they've had filming together over the years.

  • Can we get a James May unedited series? In fact, can we just get all of them doing unedited programming? I often think you guys underestimate how much we love them.

  • The sound issue with James is because the mic is against his neck instead of on the outside of his sweater. Just saying.

  • It is a fact that small, little boys can get blown away by a stronger wind situation. So Mr. May was only careful enough in his childhood.

  • Why is your audio mix always so muddy? It's like your highs are way too low for the voices, I'm having to turn up the volume or wear headphones to understand what's being said. This is disregarding the James May tea spillage, it's always a bit hard to understand on the videos where you use lav mics.

  • I've never understood how James can claim he has a fear of heights and yet he can pilot a plane. Surely that's just about the last activity someone with a fear of heights would want to do.

    Andrew BechazAndrew Bechaz3 dögum síðan
    • It has to do with trusting you’re not going to fall. In a plane, I’m sure he feels completely in control of his ability to “not fall”. Whereas riding a bike on a tall gusty bridge full of people adds many more variables he cannot control. I was sorta the same way with heights. I’d feel faint overlooking a tall building, but had zero issues riding the worlds tallest roller coasters. I trusted the coasters were designed to not drop passengers, but I didn’t trust my two left feet near a substantial drop off.
