Sacking Jeremy Clarkson From Top Gear — A Mistake Too Costly?

Written By:

We all know about this incident that happened a year ago when BBC's popular show, Top Gear's presenter Jeremy Clarkson was sacked for punching his co-worker while on shoot. But now, former BBC Director General, Mark Thompson feels that BBC may have lost a valuable asset.

To clear things out, Thompson was not involved when Clarkson was sacked as he had already quit BBC in 2012. Speaking to Sunday Times Magazine, Thompson said Jeremy was not supposed to punch his co-worker, but BBC would not afford to lose that kind of talent.

After all the drama, Jeremy apologised to his producer Tymon whom he attacked, but it was too late and cost his job. And then BBC relaunched its popular show with Chris Evans, but it had a very poor response from audience. And finally, Evans also stepped down.

On the other hand, Jeremy is all set for his new show on Amazon with James May and Richard Hammond.
