The first episode of Driven, a motoring television programme, was broadcast on Channel 4 as a rival to the successful and long-running BBC series Top Gear. Originally presented by Mike Brewer, James May and Jason Barlow, subsequent series also featured the rally driver Penny Mallory and the racing driver Jason Plato. During the show's run, both James May and Jason Barlow left the show to join the old format of BBC's Top Gear. Following the creation of Fifth Gear, Driven was cancelled by Channel 4 in 2002.
