BBC boat kill-cord program on TONIGHT

We just learned BBC will be airing their new short boat kill cord documentary tonight, Monday September 30, 2013

It will be broadcast tonight at 19:30 on BBC1 on "Inside Out South West" in the South and South West of England.

It'll be on the BBC iPlayer for a week - search for "Inside Out South West".

If you are in the UK we think you can see it from
BBC iPlayer - iPlayer TV Home

Note - BBC and iPlayer are only visible from the UK.

BBC does have a global player for purchase that will work in some other countries but not in the U.S.

This broadcast starts in something less than a couple hours from when we posted this note the way we read the time zones. Please watch it and comment here if you can. We cant see it from the U.S. using normal methods.

Yep .

I always think the reporters trying and 'excite' it all - almost looking to present/question in a way as if Mr G doesn't want people to use killcords......

Agreed. The result from where I'm sitting was Paul G came across as well thought out and logical, while Heddon Johnson came across as a bit dim and a little overzealous.

PG- RYA states a knee jerk reaction may be due to one incident, BUT on the water during filming they found half were not wearing KC. Suggests training and education fails

If this fails what options are left to RYA? A great saying on clip was "with power comes responsibility". Either this is the skipper or the RYA has to change its stance to prevent fatal accidents.
ideas-
Compulsory training/licence
Compulsory KC wearing- enforce by who?
Fines for non compliance? administered by who?
Ignore and hope nothing happens- Fatally flawed!

I just hope there is a solution and I am never faced with having to drag seriously injured or dead out of the water because the skipper could not be bothered

I havent seen the program yet, but when I was working it was a sackable offence not to use a kill cord,I didnt need that sort of stick,as I have more sense, cant swim anyway.
