About Richard Hammond Meets Evel Knievel

Richard Hammond travels to meet the man synonymous with daredevilry: Evel Knievel. A 1970s icon who became a legend for repeatedly cheating death, Knievel reflects on an extraordinary, reckless life of excess —the booze, the drugs, the comas, the 37 broken bones, the reported 2,000 lovers, and what it felt like to jump over 13 British Routemaster buses while drunk on Wild Turkey whiskey.
