The 13 Mightiest BBC News Fails Of 2013

There’s a pretty amazing BBC News blooper reel going about on YouTube. You can watch the whole thing here.

What are the ones that you should look for? Well…

1. The time this camera came by to say hello.

2. It then did it again sometime later.

3. The time the floor manager hoped you wouldn’t see him by pretending to stand really still.

4. The time this person ran out of the shot.

5. Every time the BBC News studio camera gave up…

Or started zooming into the background for fun.

Or simply just gave up and fell asleep.

6. The time they cut to BBC Weather and Susan Powell wasn’t there but the forecast started as usual anyway.

This evening: showers easing.

7. The time a caption fail turned a BBC newsreader into the Iranian President Hassan Rouhani.

8. The time Alex Jones from Infowars started shouting loudly at the end of an interview with Andrew Neil during The Sunday Politics

…so Andrew Neil reacted by doing this to camera.

9. And of course, the time Simon McCoy was caught holding A4 paper instead of an iPad at the top of the hour.

Why was it so good? Because a lot of people on Twitter got word of it and started photoshopping things in.

Or this bear that said “I love you.”

10. The blooper reel is missing some blinders though, like the time BBC News interviewed The Fonz about the expansion of Heathrow Airport (for no reason).

11. And when nothing was really working during BBC Scotland’s news bulletin, so Sally Magnusson just did this.

12. Remember when Matthew Correspondent was shown instead of Matthew Price for no reason? Classic.

Matthew Correspondent sounds a hell of a lot cooler though.

13. And who could forget the time BBC London’s Wendy Hurrell didn’t realise that the camera hadn’t stopped looking at her yet.

Love you BBC News. Never ever change.

Have a Happy Christmas. Party hard.
