He says the best plungers had strong legs and shoulders. They were also nicely buoyant. Because you're clutching grotty and once you maintain on the surface. They need to have a little bit of extra body. Fat plunge for distance isn't really around anymore but other discontinued olympic. Sports are still popular like the gym class special rope climbing.

Pipes had got shut down the glory Hall. She's feelings exactly exactly so and and I think I think that is one of the things that that is really effective wage making this properly terrifying and I'm not going to put this in anywhere near the same context and I I will say I am I am seriously impressed with the BBC at getting their first. Okay, and and and maybe maybe there used to be I mean, we have a ton of this phone call it crap now, but you go back to this period of time if you go over to Asia Japan Taiwan, they used to have a lot of these panels shows where they would send a couple of people in to a house with thermal cameras and and then they'd have a group of people talking about it and watching what was happening and and and that was an early form of this month. That then crept over here and over there and I I wonder if there's a little inspiration in that but in 1998 and I was in nineteen ninety. I was much older than you were in 1992. I believe it was Fox television in the United States ran a program called alien abduction incident at Lake County and I happened to be watching that with a group of friends on a Friday or Saturday night. And I remember when it was but I had a group of friends over at my house and we watched this program and it was also a fake I shouldn't have to say that but I'm going to was also a made-up program. Apparently what had happened was that these filmmakers had made this sort of found footage story about alien abduction and whatever happened it was somebody liked it. Well enough money. That they remade the same footage perhaps with changes. I don't know with professional actors and then the producers took that program and framed it off with experts talking about it as if they had recovered this film so they had they had people who were paid to take, you know cut in and out of this footage so they weren't trying to make it look anything like that. They were saying this is what we got. And here's what we got and they were talking to and I'm see the air quotes real experts. They had people like Stanton Friedman who was a month relatively famous. UFO researcher are quotes who who were providing commentary on this program. Now what they had done with these experts think they had it some I think they had some names Skeptics if I recall as well. They didn't know what they're they were commenting on they were doing a generic interview where so they would be dead. You know Friedman movie talking about cattle mutilations and they would insert that after you'd sequence seen the sequence where there'd been some funny business with the cows and it made this seems so much more real that and there were absolutely no credits at the beginning. It just went right into this program. And you know, I had a group of friends some of them to believe this kind of nonsense and and fair number of us who do not and you still watching the program and it's like this is I mean, they didn't say this was fake. So I mean just can't possibly be real but that that's that little doubt in your mind that there's nothing that there has to be something that's nice and and it wasn't until you're watching the end wearing very very small type at the at the end, you know, not even in the first prominent place, but took We're down in the credits where they quickly listed the actors by you know actors and you're like, oh well, we're off the hook here, but it felt like a betrayal of Television. I agree you're watching this going boy. They did not they didn't give you any warning that this was a fake and by including real people I said Stan Friedman for four months for one. I'm sure of was part of it. Even though he's a crackpot just kind of cuz he wouldn't think that a crackpot would be involved that a True Believer would be involved in a box right? I mean not the last person that they'd want to be participating in something that's pulling the wool over people's eyes about the reality of or non reality of UFOs and so long. I I was I fully was expecting ghostwatch to be years after incident at Lake County, but it is not true. It's the reverse so long Kudos to the British for getting their first the BBC once again pioneering television. But yeah, so I mean I can almost almost peeling off before the kind of found footage phenomenon that yeah, which kicked off. Yeah. I think I think the producers of Blair Witch actually have said it goes porch was an influence on on them, which would not be surprising. I read somewhere that that was common but that the that the the producer said no, no, we hadn't actually we weren't off by it. So I don't know which is true. But definitely both stories are running around out there that they were they weren't but yeah, it's nice. I'm going to catch a couple things here that we're also tip-offs and and also during the course of the the program the during a bite back one song. The production people were talking about, you know, we gave you we gave you Clues during the course of the show. We we had things in there where you know, Michael Parkinson, like if this is bothering of this distressing, you know, if your kids are watching this right now turn the TV off and put them to bed, you know and things like that. They were supposed to I don't.

"Didn't I didn't realize it was taking place until I think the third or fourth National house has been going on for decades. So I may I may have missed some some of the earlier ones because there's there's definitely a lot of a lot of entertainment to be had and the gym every time someone mentions gloryhole. There is definitely a flurry of tweets. Okay? Good good. I'm glad to hear that because that the first time through I just had to stop the tape off. Like okay, we're going to take a break here. Like all right, it's so I will make sure I put the hashtag in the tweets that go out on this. Mm so catch it catch it right on on time. I think this is brilliant piece of Television. I have never seen this before. I have only vaguely heard of it from you're mentioning it but I mean from a technical standpoint with the exception of a few a few spots in the production. It's it's it's letter-perfect. If you were trying to make something to fool people up to a point, obviously it reaches a point where it's absurd but up to a point. It's it's brilliant. Television. I I absolutely adore it lacked you introduced me to this but I'm really glad he liked it. I have to say I had no idea how you would respond to it because it's I mean, I agree I agree about it being met a person but it's letter-perfect using the language of reality television in 1992. So the first time I saw this and the reason that it is, I mean it holds I just think this is I mean, I talked to her dozen times. I think it is one of the it's one of my favorite pieces of Television, but I I came across it as it was being broadcast and probably like a lot of people I didn't see it at the beginning. I came in that way through at the beginning you get a continuity announcement that thanks to the intentions of the powers-that-be. BBC makes it clear that you're about to watch a drama program. But as you come in part way through obviously you're watching is dead. The is a studio show about about the Paranormal. I think I made a note that said if you came into this any point after 2 a.m. It's 45 seconds into the program you would you would not be anyway, I forgot what it was. It happened at 2:40 or 2:40 for that made me go. Okay, but but if you came in after that, then there will show because I kind of think you've got literally got the titles which Jonathan Powell who listen there is one of Doctor Who's greatest enemy boss insisted two days before that. They had in opening titles to it. Right the the written by is the tipoff. I mean that the part where it says, it's got my Chrome or consent, you know starring Michael Park is Sarah Green like that. That won't give you away but the written by is like wow that right? Yeah. I can't remember sequence of the title of this but off. That one makes you go. All right. Well, they still have writers though for live shows. You're not you're not necessarily they don't know any credit them because they don't want you to sing. Yeah. Yeah. Mm. I think that's fair. I think that's fair. And of course, there's no way I could go into this not knowing that it was a I don't want to say hoax because that's not what it is, but I'm not even really a mockumentary because it's not making fun of it. It's it's using it as a as a tool for a drama and it started it's good at that it's off. I'm going to come back to that cuz I I think is a mockumentary actually, but it's it's interesting that using using it as a tool to tell a ghost story off that it that it seems to work as well as it does because I have this experience which is very much. It's it's welded to how I first encountered this at the age of fifteen and Ed. So I can't really separate that and so anyone who knows anything about the show probably if they haven't seen the show directly knows about it because of the fuel fuel rail followed it because people thought it was real. They thought that Sarah Green had been killed. They thought that you know, Michael Parkinson had actually been possessed and they flooded the BBC with planes and you know, even if Thursday doesn't calls during the program. Yes, one point twenty thousand people were calling in the the telephone number. I mean, this is another interesting. But I like 1811 8181 off any kid who grew up in the eighties watching Sarah green or going live will recognize the phone number. I mean, it was used on crimewatch as well it it's the phone number. Would have used on shows like this. I mean it's it's just the ads is it the kind of perfection in the verisimilitude of this show is remarkable. So they they used a real phone number. They had five people. Yeah, five people manning the lives in case anyone was taken in and of course twenty thousand people phoning in the same time. They jammed wage. Well, then 11 million person audience to apparently yes with big at the time that wasn't as remarkable as it would seem now this this was this was off a Primetime thing. So so we're going back to a time when BBC one showed every Saturday. Well, they would it would it would run a series of films. They would call screen wage that they would show and this time of night on a Saturday. They would be a stand-alone film and they would be proper serious. Well, I mean not necessarily serious in the content but dead They would be substantial pieces of drama that essentially Watershed drama. Yeah, we're a film being shown on on television so off he's not necessarily surprising that it got an audience of that order of magnitude. Even if that was quite a big audience for a a screen one drama, but I I do think they had necessarily anticipated quite how many people they would take in and part of part of what I think is intended to make the show effective was presenting it off framing it in this way. So it was a proper modern-day ghost story but then got jumped on by the tabloids who then as they do now have them Grinders the BBC so they used it as a stick to beat the the BBC with the BBC Senior Management instantly disowned it based off. Young the show's producers and stars out to dry people like Michael Parkinson stood behind it became a kind of lightning conductor for the the Tabloid campaigns,.

How could he he knows there's no TV role for him? Now. And to be honest. It's the furthest thing from his the closest thing to his mind. Now, that's the Hollywood speak. We could say on that. I mean, he can't believe that. He didn't get to get away with us as long as Charlie rose. No kidding. How did that guy? Getting so much longer. You know when I was watching. It's the conditions of your age because what is Charlie rose twenty years older than Matt Lauer, and there's a lot of pass, you know. Passing the buck. Oh, he's just a dirty old, man. Yeah. Yeah. Depending on what someone's ages as far as we're how they are judged now. And then by that time, you know, how long you Charlie rose and Matt Lauer been fixtures, the respective networks, and they were they were the network. I mean synonymous. Yes, interesting. So that's not he is thinking about it. But he knows there's no way he though is spending a little bit of time ironing out an agreement after both he and his his current wife and that Roque did they both? Switch lawyer. Yes, of course tactic. Don't like what that lawyers telling me how Gopi somebody else some other differ telling you have to pay the same amount. Okay. Courtney Cox heels what led hurt to stop using fillers. What do you think? Larry. Jennifer, Aniston said something I thought that'd be the answer to this. But but she's not being so honest and saying that instead she saying I didn't realize why looked like until one day I stepped back and looked in the mirror, and I was like, oh, no, I don't even look like myself anymore. And so she said trying you have to accept getting older. It's something I've really had a hard time doing which I love her explaining it. And she just said I mean to it is for everybody. More. So if you're somebody where you've been onscreen, you're still in reruns people, see you, and then you are who looks like they're twenty year old self from her, you know, there if you're thirty and now you're fifty or if you're in it's all documented.

I know what you're talking about. Because you sent me that new said I'll come back and explain he was on was it. Jimmy Fallon, Jimmy Kimmel. Did you watch him on the show? Donnie, did you notice his new absence of the beard? Maybe is what changed his look made them look younger with the absence of the beard, but nothing more specific than that. What did I miss? Well, my mom just wanted to know how do people in Hollywood explain? They're new faces to their Chevy's nowhere. I'll tell you how I explained when I got a blue peel. I came home, and I was blue. And they're like why would you do that? Because it's going to make me look. Yeah. Yeah. That's it. If you come home with a new face, I didn't Laurie. He doesn't. I'm looking at pictures of him. This is based on your mother was she was late evening. Can we'll Marino kill. And while you're doing that does look like he's maybe been bladed a bladed and freshly taxed for sure, but that's fine.
