ITV is to air a second series of ‘Caught On Camera’
“I must admit I thought I was dead. I looked out of that window, saw the front grill of that truck and I thought, ‘Today you die.’” – Iain Reid, whose car was hit by a lorry on a motorway
Jamie Theakston returns to ITV as he narrates the documentary series which brings to screens a host of real-life incidents from across Britain.
The second series is to air over four episodes with a compilation of footage and interviews that charts some of Britain’s most shocking road accidents, jaw-dropping driving and miraculous near misses. With accounts from the people who were there, and those who survived the incidents, the factual series mixes the talking heads with the actual footage from the scene as caught on camera by the people at the very centre of the action.
The real-life dramas from the nation’s roads were captured by cameras on drivers’ dashboards, on bike helmets, smartphones and CCTV.
Stories in the first episode include lessons with the man who holds the world record for the tightest parallel park, tales of miraculous survival from motorway smashes and what happened when a man’s runaway tractor crashed into his ex-wife’s garden. In following episodes learner driver issues are featured as well as those pesky parallel parking nightmares.
Car Crash Britain: Caught On Camera, returns to ITV, UTV and STV on Thursday May 4th at 9pm.
