    I'd not seen that before! :D :D

    Cancel my plans Miss Jones, i shall now be spending my time watching Anthea Turner getting blown up on a loop.

    What was the state of her afterwards? It looks like her bouffant acted as a pretty good shield.

    No, I'm quite sure it was Anthea herself.

    I love the way that there are multiple uploads of that video on YouTube - all the ones by Brits think it's hilarious; all the Americans are concerned that she might be DEAD.

    This clip is repeated AD NAUSEAM :D in every BBC online course about Risk Assessments - they're commonly known as "the courses with the video where Anthea Turner gets blown up". Apparently she was supposed to stand up and start walking towards the screen whilst talking and then the motorbiker would go past her and the fireworks would fly off from the truck to finish the piece to camera (which sounds slightly insane already :D) but somebody gave the cue to the biker to start driving too early, she hadn't stood up when he passed by and the pyrotechnics guy set the fires off the moment he saw him driving off as he clearly wanted to MURDER her :D

    Thanks for the explanation Peeka, now the questions are answered I can finally enjoy it fully :D I couldn't work out why the bike would come out of the truck AND explode

    Let's face it, what sane person when faced with a shitload of explosives and Anthea Turner in close proximity wouldn't do the same?

    Sadly the only video I found called "Lulu explodes" didn't seem to have any relation to the witch

    Let's face it, she pissed off enough people during her tenure there. There was probably a QUEUE for that particular GIG.

    The thing I love about the video is how it starts as any other Blue Peter PTC (ie: Anthea sweetly swinging her feet sat on the truck and talking in a condescending tone) but suddenly it all becomes HORROR FILM night and the flames engulf her whilst she gives this AMAZING SHRIEK :D whilst plummeting to her aparent death. The CASUAL 'y'alright luv?' at the end is just the icing on the cake.

    It's the camp scream as she's flopping down that gets me.

    It's the FLOP itself that does it for me. For one BLISSFUL second it's as if she's LIFELESS.

    Yeah I was gonna say! The Wilhelm scream has been used in DOZENS of famous movies, it's like a running joke for sound editors :geek:

    THIS one doesn't have it. What it loses in camp scream, it makes up for in DULL THUD :D

    I have to admit, just when you think the video can't get any better, it's actually the understated northern "you alright luv?" that makes it for me!

    I seriously can't stop laughing at that! How has no one mentioned the cameraman asking "ya alright luv?" in a really calm/non-plussed way at the end...plus in the longer video he still did his job of filming the bike over checking on her :)
