Description

Giant Haystacks demonstrates the art of wrestling on unfortunate UTV presenter, Jackie Fullerton, by painfully, slamming him to the studio floor!

Perhaps the most infamous episode of Fullerton's illustrious broadcasting career, the incident - which took place during a recording of Good Evening Ulster - would be rebroadcast around the world, appearing in a variety of blooper compilation programmes.

Notes

Fullerton's presenting career began in 1973 as a reporter and presenter for Ulster Television. He was invited to work for the station by station controller Sidney Perry, after participating in a penalty competition for the Sportscast programme. He became the main sports anchor on UTV's evening magazine programme, Good Evening Ulster.
