ALL NEW PROGRAMS FOR FEBRUARY

TOP GEAR, SEASON TEN � U.S. PREMIERE

Irreverent, witty and refreshingly honest, the award-winning Top Gear seeks out the hottest new cars on the market. Top Gear features dare devil stunts, time trials and grueling road tests, but it's the sharp wit of its hosts, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, that makes Top Gear so much more than the ultimate car show. Season ten features Formula One racers, a contest between a fighter jet and the Bugatti Veyron, a battle between bio-fuelled cars, an African safari, a challenge to create amphibious vehicles and a visit from Academy Award-winning speed-demon, Helen Mirren. Top Gear, season ten premieres Monday, February 25, 8:00 p.m. ET/PT.

THAT MITCHELL AND WEBB LOOK � U.S. PREMIERE

Full of strange and wonderful characters, The Daily Telegraph describes the series as �pure comedy gold� raving, �keep this up, they'll be making Gervais and co. look like the warm-up act.� That Mitchell and Webb Look premieres Friday, February 8, 9:20 p.m. ET/PT.

THE BAFTA FILM AWARDS� U.S. PREMIERE

BBC AMERICA is the exclusive American broadcaster of The BAFTA Film Awards.
