Sex pistols live on tv 1976 TV special is a program that is not part of a regular series, but is broadcast on television. They usually appear as a movie, documentary, award show, news event, or interview.
The term originally applied to a major dramatized presentation. However in modern times, a large collection of TV specials have taken the form of documentaries, which examine an aspect of reality. In February of 2008, BBC Two aired a documentary based on a study by Professor David Nutt, a psycho-pharmacologist at Bristol University. Nutt and his team analyzed the negative effects caused by 20 common drugs.
They asked a group of 29 consultant psychiatrists who specialize in addiction to rate the drugs in categories based on physical harm, addiction, and social disruption. The goal of the documentary was to examine how the brain and body react to specific drugs. It showed how each substance passes into the bloodstream and what the long-term effects of the drugs are relative to their current classification. The program raised questions over the current drug classification system used in the United Kingdom. The UK government’s top advisory committee members on drug classification were among the scientists involved in the study. Some people think the data recorded by Professor David Nutt should be used to help update drug classification rankings. In the early 1990s, a 17-minute, black-and-white film surfaced showing what was suggested to be an alien autopsy conducted near Roswell, New Mexico in 1947.
The footage was originally promoted by Ray Santilli, a London-based entrepreneur, who claimed he had received it from an unidentified, former military cameraman. After the video became public, it was sold to a number of different television networks and broadcast in more than 32 countries. Alien Autopsy: Fact or Fiction features interviews with Oscar-winning special effects make-up artist Stan Winston, cinematographer Allen Daviau, and noted forensic pathologist Cyril Wecht, who considered the autopsy procedures in the film to be authentic, but stopped short of declaring the being an alien. At the time it aired, the program was the highest-rated TV special in Fox history.
In 2006, the alien autopsy footage was exposed as a hoax when Ray Santilli admitted it was staged. He has suggested that a few frames from a genuine alien procedure were embedded into his film. In Alien Autopsy: Fact or Fiction, artifacts are featured which were supposedly recovered from the crash site. These objects include alien symbols and six-finger control panels. It has since been realized that all the items were fabricated by Ray Santilli and friends.
Australia’s Naughtiest Home Videos is a controversial Australian television comedy program which was broadcast on Nine Network in 1992. The program was a one-off special of Australia’s Funniest Home Video Show. It depicted videos of sexual situations and explicit content. The show gained notoriety for, as with the American TV show Turn-On, being taken off the air part-way through the broadcast of its first and only episode. The TV special was a collection of videos that were submitted to the producers of Australia’s Funniest Home Video Show, but originally deemed to explicit for television. Before the show aired, a short message was posted that warned the public of the content. The show was hosted by Australian celebrity Doug Mulray.
Some of the videos included in the program were shots of animal genitalia, humans or animals engaging in sexual intercourse, and people who get humorously disrobed. In one clip, a little girl is filmed grabbing a kangaroo’s scrotum. On the night of the broadcast, Kerry Packer, the owner of the Nine Network at the time, was informed of the show’s content by friends. Get that stuff off the air! Within minutes, the series was pulled.
