Holbeck Hall Hotel, Scarborough, collapses on live TV

348 ratings | 306047 views
Sunday June 6, 1993: A wing of the Holbeck Hall Hotel on Britain's east coast collapses into the sea as the cliff wall beneath it gives way. It happens at the exact moment Yorkshire TV's Calendar programme goes on the air, with the presenter, the great Richard Whiteley, positioned in front of the building. The first part of the clip, recorded from the studio feed before it went on air and with director Dave Behrens heard on gallery talkback, is from a documentary screened shortly after Richard's death.

The Holbeck Hotel collapse was an inside job. You can clearly see it was a controlled demolition. A scheme masterminded by Dick Cheney, Huckleberry Hound, and Count Chocula to create a false pretext for invading Luxembourg. Wake up you sheep!

Why the heck would ANYONE build a house on a cliff?
Arthur Pewtey (21 days ago)
Didn't it occur to you that, 110 years ago, when it was built, it might have been situated perfectly safely and with nice sea views? If I owned a plot of land today that was 100m from the sea, and was looking to build something, I don't think I'd worry too much that it might become unsafe for habitation in, er, 2129! Furthermore, Wikipedia actually suggests that the problem was "soil slip" and had nothing to do with sea erosion: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Holbeck_Hall_Hotel Perhaps the moral of the story, from the info on that site, is don't build anything at all in Scarborough?

Kind of a clickbaity title.

Boring. I wanted the whole thing to fall over.
Captain Quirk (25 days ago)
Yeah, the video's exaggerating title misleadingly implies that that's what happened. Disappointing when only a small part on the far side of the building fell.

They should've shown Richard Whiteley getting his finger bitten by a ferret that wouldn't let go. That was surely his finest 5 minutes...

Well done Sherlock.

I don't know what you expected, it's not going to collapse all at once, it's not that kind of structural failure, it's gradual collapse due to subsidence.
Jeff Allinson (1 year ago)
Nobody asked you to watch it.
