Simon Calder's video diary bloomers
Saturday 17 December 2011
Hello, Simon Calder here. If you’ve been kind enough to watch my weekly video diary for The Independent Traveller through the year, you really deserve to know what’s been cut.
It’s traditional at this time of year for viewers to be invited to watch the offcuts – those parts of, say, a travel film that don’t make the final version. So here at The Independent we thought you should see misfortune – and sheer incompetence – that have bedevilled our filming through the year.
From vile weather to unpredictable buses, these are the clips where it wasn't alright on the night.
