@vfrmedia I'm reminded of when Jeremy Clarkson punched his producer after they didn't provide a meal and he had been performing pretty much every waking minute that day. Sure, Clarkson said some things that he shouldn't have in a heat of hanger but, christ on fire, performers shouldn't be pushed to that point to start with.
Anthea Turner was blown up and badly burned on a BBC *kids* show as she was incorrectly allowed to stand in the blast range of a pyro effect; I once worked alongside a broadcast engineer who was on that programme and he said he was offered several thousand pounds to "accidentally" put the compliance recording tape in the bulk eraser (he refused, and was laid off from BBC Manchester at the next round of cutbacks)
@vfrmedia I also think it's pretty bad that that everyone focused on Clarkson punching his producer and calling him a "lazy Irish fuck" like it was a race thing and not the part where it was the evening, he just learned he wasn't getting food, and had been working and sleeping without food since the morning of the previous day. @InternetEh
