When Live TV Goes Horribly Wrong

Executive Producer
1st TX: 5th February 2017.
From technical trouble to jaw-droppingly inappropriate behaviour, fist fights to collapsing sets these are the moments that live TV left producers red-faced and viewers open-mouthed.
Expect the unexpected, as the people who were there recall live TV's ickiest moments including Channel 5 favourite The Wright Stuff which has had to deal a raft of muck ups, including unwanted guests, exploding lights to name just a few. There's also the day Lorraine Kelly was forced off the air, and the reality TV star who revealed more than she bargained for to the nation.
There’s a heart-stopping moment on Poland’s answer to This Morning, Pytanie na Sniadanie (Question for Breakfast) where a wannabe magician impales the hand of presenter, Marzena Rogalska, whilst showing off the notoriously dangerous Russian roulette-style ‘Spike Trick’ live to the nation.
There’s also a lowlight from The National Lottery Jetset as Sarah Cawood recalls the day the studio was invaded by Fathers For Justice. Cheryl Baker offers some insight into Eurovision’s most offkey moments. And telly veteran John Stapleton opens up about the day The Time The Place was taken off the air due to a protest in studio. There are also rare moments of imperfection from TV favourites This is Your Life, Eurovision and The Charlie Drake Show.
Celebrities commentating on clips include include Penny Smith, Dom Joly, Maria McErlane & Matt Johnson.
