Jeremy Clarkson's last 'Top Gear' scenes will be shown on the BBC later this year.
Kim Shillinglaw, controller of BBC Two and BBC Four, said the unused footage, though incomplete, is likely to air this summer.
She said: "No way would I want the available material not to be seen by viewers".
The BBC dropped Jeremy in March following a fracas with 'Top Gear' producer Oisin Tymon.
The row, which took place in a North Yorkshire hotel, was said to have occurred because no hot food was provided following a day's filming.
After an internal investigation, BBC director general Tony Hall confirmed the TV host's contract would not be renewed.
Jeremy later revealed that he thought he probably had cancer at the time he hit 'Top Gear' producer Tymon.
The 55-year-old car enthusiast later said that the incident came on his "most stressful day ... in 27 years at the BBC" - but that other people facing stress "manage to cope better than (he) did".
While a replacement for his 'Top Gear' post hasn't been confirmed yet, Sue Perkins has been named the bookie's favourite to replace him, followed by Dermot O'Leary and Jodie Kidd.
The news prompted a barrage of abusive tweets for the 'Great British Bake Off' host, and she later quit Twitter.
