I saw it by chance. It's a bit of an odd program isn't it? The narrator had an english accent, but spoke in American, using terms like "station wagon" and "gasoline". I couldn't work out if it was an english program that had been specially Americanized, or an American one that had been dubbed into english. Definitely worth a look though, if you're a bit of a Saab nut :o) Cheers, Colin.
