BBC News Reader "Hit By Giggling Fit"
- And It's Contagious! (Need A Laugh?)
April 10, 2008
Hundreds of listeners recently contacted BBC Radio 4 after newsreader Charlotte Green dissolved into giggles while reading a bulletin on Today.
She lost control after playing a clip of the oldest known recording of the human voice.
Presenter James Naughtie intervened as she struggled to tell listeners about the death of screenwriter Abby Mann.
"I'm afraid I just lost it, I was completely ambushed by the giggles," said Green.
She admitted a similar giggling fit besieged her about 10 years ago, also on the Today program.
