TELEVISION screens across the country lit up with views of the Rutland countryside last night.
Top Gear presenters Jeremy Clarkson and Richard Hammond visited the county in June to film an episode of the popular motoring programme which was screened on BBC Two last night.
They were testing second hand cars which they had bought for under £7,000 and visited Exton and Cottesmore before heading towards Market Harborough.
Social networking sites Twitter and Facebook were filled with delighted former and current Rutland residents who had spotted some familiar views and roads on their televisions.
