I saw an old dear get run over outside the newsagents on the corner of Harehills Lane and Compton Road. The sounds she made lying there stayed with me for a long time. I felt useless, a few of us tried talking to her but I don't it registered.
I remember watching a documentary where they played the Kenneth Bigley footage. They stopped the moving images but continued with some of the sound. Fucking horrific.

Jesus mate that sounds awful.  I wonder if I would be practical and strong or just fucking useless and upset.  Guess I'd rather not find out.

Never really knew the full story about Timothy Treadwell and his girlfriend's death so on the back of your post RP,I googled it this afternoon.
Kinell,wish I hadn't now,it brought up some pretty gruesome images!

The film goes into his obsession more than anything.   His delusion that the bears were his friends.  It was a tragic inevitability which was going to happen sooner or later.

Re: Hillsborough Inquest

If you ever was in those pens you canly imagine the horror as H so eloquently put it.

Kid at work said why do they keep going on about it?

Because pal they died and a police cover up ensued thats why.

The video has now been blocked unfortunately. It's an ESPN doc & wasn't able to be aired in the uk until after the inquest had returned a verdict. The BBC had a hand in it and it's meant to be being shown later this year.

BBC 2, Sunday 8th May 21:00.

Not seen this before. Very harrowing, impossible to watch without getting a lump in your throat. Anyone else notice at 34 minutes and two seconds there is millisecond flash of a scene on a beach? Unsettling.

I was there on this day.  Stood on The Holgate (couldn't get a ticket for away end - was living in Boro at time) and went down to the front with dozens of others who were transferred into the pen along with others from different parts of the ground

Fences are bad.  Fences with rotating spikes even worse

That said,  the crush wasn't much - you can see at the end people were able to move around but lessons still hadn't been learned

You are what you repeatedly do. Excellence is not an event - it is a habit.

Re: Hillsborough Inquest

I'm in there somewhere, it was scary shit. Happened at Ipswich a few weeks later too. Looked up and saw my mate next to the ref telling him to stop the game.

Re: Hillsborough Inquest

As awful as it is to watch it (I'm pausing it just now), I appreciate the ESPN video having been put up on here. I've got butterflies as I write, but all I can say is that those of us who were caught in multiple terrace surges and crushes back in the day know how lucky we were. Thank heavens justice in this case has finally been done.

Re: Hillsborough Inquest

That Daniel Gordon's documentary will be on BBC2 Sunday, 9pm, I believe with none of the 10 minute breaks you get with yank telly. It was held back due to the inquest. He's also been asked to supply all of his footage for the criminal case I was just reading. Hope the families take SYP to the cleaners and surely there's a case to answer to at The Sun as well?

Orgreave miners next please..

Re: Hillsborough Inquest

Watched the documentary last night. An incredible, powerful, moving piece of work. Some of those images from the day where they're crushed at the front, Jesus, found myself rapid breathing, like I was panicking myself.

Grim viewing. Brain stops computing the image.

Scraton. What an amazing man.

He’s walked back to his youth and hymned the young man he was with knowing affection, despite the rain of bitter knowledge manhood has inevitably brought him.
