Jay's Runaway lunar buggy on UK TV

Added on Friday 07 September 2007, 13:25 (BST)

On Monday 10 September at 19:00 on BBC2 (UK), a television show that looks at "some of the most surprising and influential technological advances of the past hundred years" will feature the moon buggy as used in the Runaway promo video.

"Jay Kay – the lead singer from Jamiroquai - lends James his replica Lunar Rover to test drive. NASA built four to take to the moon in the 1970s, and at $38 million, they were the most expensive fleet cars ever built. He drives the car to a quiet suburban corner of Chiswick, West London: to Staveley Road, the spot where he believes the Space Age began from Britain's point of view."

More information about the moon buggy as used in the Runaway promo video can be found in an earlier news item, and further info about the show, James May's 20th Century, can be found at the website.
