Sad news from England...

They're saying on the wireless that a nurse in England connected to the Sydney 'Radio Prank' has died. It looks like suicide. Apparently the nurse was not the one heard on the tape, but the one who put the call through to the ward.
What a sad end to what seemed like a harmless bit of fun..

It might've been enough to push her over the edge..

Not sure where to get the collar thingy, as you'd know most of them are brittle these days. I'll look in my little nest of HR stuff, I may have one. Actually if I have one I may keep it, but if I have a spare we can maybe work something out.

Sorry Al, forgot to get back to you..
I've got a couple of columns, but no collar thingys. They must've broke or gone missing over the years. I have a feeling HKTG ones may be the same? Just a thought..

This woman could have gone to any of the English tabloids and sold an interview or three and made this into a massive money spinner, they would have been falling over themselves for first dibs. I think there must have been more going on and can't see how they can blame the radio station for her death. (Although they have apparently broken the radio code of ethics by not informing them it was going to be on radio before broadcasting it).
If anything this reflects on the hospital who obviously have not trained staff correctly. in a hospital that housed a future heir to the throne security should have been much better, the call should have been scrutinised better.
I found the call mildy funny, but they should have been told or asked if it was ok to broadcast it, which is apparently the done thing with most other radio pranks.

I'm glad FJWB mentioned the hospital and Royal security. While the 2 zany, whacky, too-cool, hilarious radio jerks need to wear some blame (hilarious prank, you too, hey let's ring the family of the murdered police officer next and pretend to be someone from Bunnings selling axes) there's no denying hospital management and the Royal security personnel would have gone through her like a dose of salts.

FJWb and Norton58 have hit the nail on the head. All the press were criticising the fact that the person who took the initial call should have been more diligent.

The press slammed her for putting the call through.

The radio station told her that they were Kate's grandmother, so that could have been Kate's mum's mother, Kate's dad's mother, Dianne's Mum or the queen. The queen was mentioned near the end of the second nurses deliberation.

All a big blame game now, but the press will not replay the stuff they were saying about it.

WHAT? no gravy?

Orsen Welles did a radio broadcast of The War of the Worlds in 1938. If you ever get a chance to see "The Night that Panicked America", it's well worth a look.

pretty harmless except that that poor nurse had her career destroyed and would probably still be alive if the 'joke' had not been broadcast.
