"Fifth Gear" -- Motoring magazine with Tiff Needell, Vicki Butler-Henderson, Jason Plato and Tom Ford. A weekly hour long show featuring car reviews, shoot outs, scientific safety tests and amazing competitions.
Originally shown on Channel 5 from 2002 to 2011 and Discovery from 2012 onwards, the show is currently presented by Tiff Needell, Vicki Butler-Henderson, Jason Plato and Jonny Smith. Fifth Gear's rival show is BBC Two's Top Gear.
Fifth Gear was first broadcast on 8 April 2002 as a continuation of the original incarnation of the BBC show Top Gear, which was cancelled in 2001 due to low ratings. Top Gear was relaunched later that year; Channel 5 originally wanted to carry on using the Top Gear name, but the BBC refused. Several of Top Gear's ex-presenters, including Quentin Willson, Tiff Needell, and Vicki Butler-Henderson were hired by Channel 5 to present Fifth Gear.
