From technical trouble, jaw-droppingly inappropriate behaviour, fist fights, to collapsing sets these are the moments that left live TV producers red-faced and viewers open-mouthed.

Expect the unexpected, as the people who were there recall live TV's ickiest moments including live bloopers from the world of sport, a mind-blowing earthquake on Italian TV, a Greek news presenter who was attacked mid-broadcast and the unfortunately-named Indian MP, Poonam Madam, who falls into a sewer in the middle of a TV interview.

Celebrities commentating on clips include Penny Smith, Dom Joly, Maria McErlane & Matt Johnson. Narrated by Richard Arnold.

Series 2 - Episode 2

Highlights include presenter Ross King who has a run-in with movie hard man Vinnie Jones. Fog beleaguers poor announcer Larry Collmus when he’s forced to ad lib a live horse race. Plus we have an exclusive with one of Australia’s top news journalists Tim Arvier whose routine story on an investigative programme ended in him fearing for his life. Also, there’s the tragic story of a teenage boy who wanted to impress TV producers of a top Indian talent show by setting himself on fire.

Series 2 - Episode 1

Highlights include live bloopers and foul ups from TV’s shopping channels. There’s fisticuffs when a young Brazilian reporter meets the fist of angry politician. Plus, there’s the heart-stopping moment a TV crew get too close to a live mule race. Also, there are some classic TV moments from long-forgotten gameshows Queen for a Day and the somewhat bafflingly named, Do You Trust Your Wife?
