Holbeck Hall Hotel, Scarborough, collapses on live TV

163 ratings | 151820 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.

Boooo! Lame collapse. I wanted to see it all cave in! This was nothing!

God the days he would host countdown. The new presenters Jimmy and Nick (Jimmy at night Nick at noon/day) have completely ruined the show especially Jimmy with 8 out of ten cats because of all the adult humor and jokes. I really do miss Richard :( If there was one person I could bring back from the dead it would be him, even if he couldn't keep his career going. The only shilling left of the old countdown days is Suzy Dent. At least she can keep hanging.

Ffs. It was only the chimney. Hardly the whole hotel as your fucking clickbait bullshit title suggests. I want my money back.

Could only happen to twice nightly, this kind of thing only happens once yearly nearly. Big love Richard.

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.

Nobody asked you to watch it.
