It’s Friday and you’re not in the mood for a heavy lecture on the finer points of television production, are you?
So let’s have some light relief.
One of the topics we will return to many times, I’m quite sure, is When Things Go Wrong (and what you can learn from it!).
This is a famous incident from ‘This Morning’. It was broadcast live to over a million viewers in October 2003 and involved a knife-thrower’s attempt to beat his own record for the most knives he could throw at his assistant (and girlfriend) in 60 seconds. The clip is a favourite on YouTube but here it is again just for you! I was editor of the show at the time. If only my answer had been different when someone suggested the item in the first place…. (and then again we’d never have got all the publicity afterwards!).
