Top Gear Christmas Special: What really happened in Patagonia? By Harriet Alexander 12:00PM GMT 27 Dec 2014 Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond arrived in Argentina in September to film the Top Gear Christmas Special. The subsequent fortnight was even more dramatic than they could have imagined On a ridge, high above the vast, sparsely-populated plains of Patagonia, Jeremy Clarkson is standing with his binoculars craned towards the horizon. "Who are those guys?" he asks his Top Gear co-presenters, James May and Richard Hammond, as they look into the distance. The trailer for the Christmas special of the wildly-popular BBC show, which airs on December 27 and 28, gives little away. Car wheels spin in mud. Tyres skid across snow and ice. The presenters ask "Where the hell are we?" as their crunched up, cannibalised cars shunt cow carcasses through a forest. But by now, of course, everyone knows that this years Top Gear Christmas special is more controversial than most – as Clarkson alludes, when he peers into the distance, seemingly spotting trouble ahead. The team claim that they were chased out of Argentina, fearing for their lives, after they "happened" to drive around the South American country with a number plate referencing the Falklands invasion of 1982 – H982 FKL, read the writing on Clarksons Porsche. But what really went on in Patagonia? Did the team actually know what they were getting up to? The ambassador of Argentina, Alicia Castro, has appealed to the BBC Trust, and taken her complaint to the BBCs Executive Board. On December 11 the presenter was driving through central London. "Of all the places to get stuck in a traffic jam," he tweeted. Flying above him was the flag of Argentina. But when the team arrived in Argentina, landing in Buenos Aires on September 17, all began smoothly. A tired-looking Clarkson was accosted by a fan at the airport – posing wearily for a photo. But by two days later, with the local press and blogs announcing the arrival of team, they were settled into the spectacularly-located Llao Llao hotel in the Andean resort of Bariloche, overlooking the mountains and Lake Moreno, and the teams spirits were high. The chalet-style hotel, with its spa, open log fires and proximity to the ski slopes of Cerro Catedral, attracts five-star visitors from all around the world. "Argentina. In a hotel bar. I am going to live here," he tweeted, with a photo of cans of Quilmes, the Argentine beer. But it was while the team were at the hotel, with their cars parked beneath an open-air wooden shelter, that the first sparks of trouble were lit. Autoblog Argentina, who had sent a photographer to the hotel to try and steal some crumbs of information about the top-secret filming, tweeted a photo of Clarksons Porsche. "Top Gear Argentina has begun its ironies. The Porsche that @JeremyClarkson is driving through Patagonia. Anyone else read 1982 Falklands?" But, at that point, the ripples from the Spanish-language tweet were yet to engulf the team – despite Clarkson having noticed the tweet. "The truth is the first time we realised the plate could be a problem was on the third night of our shoot in Argentina (19 September, I believe), when Jeremy was scrolling through Twitter and spotted a comment on one of the auto fan sites, next to a photo of the plate. I remember his surprise and concern," said Andy Wilman, Top Gear producer. Mr Wilman said they took the decision not to enter Tierra del Fuego, in southern Argentina, with the number plates – which they maintain to this day were an accident. But up until then, the plan was to carry on as usual - only changing the plates for the final stage. And so they set off along Avenida Bustillo, towards the town of El Bolson – a magnificent road, past mountain peaks and sparkling lakes, along Ruta 40 – the quintessential Patagonian highway, which starts in Bariloche and ends 1,600 miles to the south, in Ushuaia. Argentinas national parks authority reportedly wanted to charge the team for filming along certain sections of the route, so instead the three veered off Ruta 40 and into Chile, having crossed Futaleufu-Palena border near the Argentine town of Trevelin – where, thanks to the arrival of fifty Welsh families in 1885, Welsh is spoken to this day. By this point Clarksons trip was beginning to get noticed in the British press – and the risk of letting the notorious provocateur loose in Argentina was seized upon by the tabloids. The Mirror reported that Clarkson had been warned to behave himself while in Argentina – a charge he denied. On September 23 he tweeted: According to the Mirror, the BBC told me not to misbehave while Im in Argentina. 1) they havent and 2) see pic pic.twitter/bd3erxSsTZ. 10:48pm - 23 Sep 14 The team carried on happily through Chile, before returning to Argentina and arriving in El Calafate – hometown of President Cristina Kirchner, and a well-known spot for tourists keen to visit the nearby Perrito Moreno glacier. In the town, Clarkson and his two companions made an appointment at El Gringo mechanics – to tune their cars. "The cars were subjected to the usual tuning of Top Gear specials – they modified the suspension to better handle the gravel roads, and added grotesque off-road accessories," wrote an account in local newspaper El Periodical Austral. "They also altered the boot of the cars to increase the cargo capacity. The Porsche and Mustang were transformed into pickups, while the Lotus now tows a trailer." With Ruta 40 coming to an end, the team had to cross back into Chile to navigate down to Ushuaia – capital of Tierra del Fuego, "the land of fire". For a second time the team passed through Chile, driving through Punta Arenas where, El Periodical Austral reports, "they bought all manner of junk – including a $2,400 flask in the Transworld Supply shop." The paper added mysteriously: "The reason for the purchase? That is a secret only known to Andy Wilman, legendary executive producer of Top Gear." Taking the ferry from Punta Arenas, on September 23 they arrived back in Argentina and finally in Ushuaia – famed as the most southerly city in the world, despite the smaller Puerto Williams in Chile being actually further south. Their crew of 40 people took over the Hotel Arakur – another stunning site, at the foot of a soaring snow-capped mountain, which promises "a perfect balance between serenity and adventure". It was then that the trouble began. After one successful day of filming at Cerro Castor, a small ski resort 10 miles from Ushuaia, the team were due to resume on Thursday September 25 – with the idea of filming, on snow, in their cars, an Argentine-England football match. But they were prevented by an angry gang, who swarmed into the reception of the Arakur hotel. Clarkson told The Sun, for which he writes a regular column: "We knew absolutely nothing about the number plate, it was just an unbelievable coincidence. I swear on my kids lives. "When we saw people on Twitter getting upset we took the plate off. But they still attacked us so we made a break for it to our hotel in Ushuaia." The crowd tried to get into the hotel. "They were very tense moments. The war veterans were furious and shouting insults," said Martin Marcilla, receptionist at the hotel. "Police had to remove the protesters. Luckily things didnt get too out of hand. It was all very sudden and unexpected." The Top Gear crew quickly packed and, after negotiations with Mariano Plecity, a local government minister, decided to cut short the filming by three days and leave Argentina. "They left by a service door and in such a hurry that they even forgot a computer," said Mr Marcilla. A group of Falklands veterans said that they had heard about the numberplate, and decided to protest. "What they did was an offence that, through no coincidence, was committed in the Malvinas capital, without any regard to local feeling," said Osvaldo Hilliar, a member of the Falklands War Veterans Association. "We told them we couldnt guarantee their security if they didnt leave." The team departed, and, on reaching Tolhuin - 80 miles from Ushuaia - left the cars behind in a police compound. "Were leaving the cars, we dont want any more problems," one of the production team said, according to the site Resumen Policial. "If you want, set fire to them." Some suggested that Clarkson and his crew had tried to set fire to the vehicles – something he vehemently denied. (Twitter) @jeremyclarkson: We didnt try to set fire to the cars. There was a small battery issue when the on board cameras were removed in a big hurry. 9:35am - 6 Dec 14 But more problems lay ahead. On the road to Chile, while under police escort, a group of angry youngsters lay in wait. "Theyre on their way," says one man, who filmed the incident on his phone. "They are driving cars which mock Argentina for 1982." He adds with a giggle: "Were blocking the road for that ------." As the sirens of the police cars signified the approach of Clarkson and his fleeing team, some among the frenzied crowd picked up rocks to hurl at the passing cars, injuring Norbert Rivero, one of the drivers for Paneus, their local filming partners. Whooping and laughing, the gang jog after the cars, who drive off into the night. "That was over quickly," laughed the man holding the camera phone. Clarkson saw it somewhat differently. "Thousands chased crew to border. Someone could have been killed," said Clarkson afterwards. "And these war veterans we upset. Mostly they were in their 20s. Do the maths." Clarkson remained convinced that the teams problems were caused by local politicians wanting to create "political capital" ahead of local elections. "The mob just descended on the hotel and encircled us. State representatives came and ordered us out of the country." He added: "Ive been to Iraq and Afghanistan but this was the most terrifying thing Ive ever been involved in. "There were hundreds of them. They were hurling rocks and bricks at our cars. They were trying to attack us with pickaxe handles. "They were shouting. Burn their cars, burn them, burn the pirates. I am convinced the mob was state organised." Mr Plecity, the local government representative, resigned at the beginning of this month, without giving a reason. And across the country, the consensus appears to be that Clarkson was foolish that the BBC should not continue to state that the numberplates were accidental that the mob should not have thrown stones but that Clarksons life was never, as he said, in danger. Indeed, the local authorities wrote to Maria Fabiana Rios, the governor of Tierra del Fuego, assuring her that the team were protected at all times and denying Clarksons claim that he was targeted because he was British. "We dont think that Top Gear should be making jokes about a war," said Carlos Cristófalo, the Argentine journalist who runs Autoblog Argentina, and whose tweet alerted the world to the numberplate. "But on the other hand, we condemn the aggression against the team. Irony should be met with irony - not with stones." Mr Cristófalo told The Telegraph that he thought it was absurd that the team continued to state that the numberplate was a coincidence. "No one who has seen every series of Top Gear can think that it was a casual thing," he said. "Top Gear always makes these kinds of jokes. "We have a profound respect for what Top Gear means to the history of television. But we just reget that Top Gear doesnt respect its audience and dignifies them with a proper explanation of what went on." And finally, after a fortnight of filming far more dramatic than even they had planned, the team made it back into Chile, with James May tweeting on October 4: JamesMay: Despite all this crap, a big up to all the very friendly and hospitable people we met in Argentina. Nice scenery, too. 5:24am - 5 Oct 14 Even Clarkson thanked the people of Argentina. "My profound thanks to all the people who helped. And to the sensible Argentinians who have apologised," he said. "This was not a jolly jape that went awry. For once, we did nothing wrong." He then added gleefully: "We had planned a good ending for the show. "But thanks to the governments foolishness, its now even better."
