Shattered: legacy of a reality TV experiment in extreme sleep deprivation

The prize was £100,000. Purported risks included depression and hallucinations. Channel 4’s show probably couldn’t be made today – but almost 15 years later do the contestants regret taking part?

Almost 15 years ago, 10 young people were tortured in an abandoned shopping centre in east London on live TV. They were contestants on the reality show Shattered, competing to stay awake as long as possible in order to win a £100,000 cash prize. After 178 hours of sleep deprivation, Clare Southern (now Clare Farah), a 19-year-old police cadet nicknamed “the Terminator”, scooped a £97,000 prize pot.

Viewers complained to Ofcom about the show’s premise and the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy described the show as “misconceived and dangerous”, pointing out that American DJ Peter Tripp had a breakdown after he stayed awake for a world record 201 hours in 1959.

A Birthday Salute to Mick Jagger: 75 Years of Sympathy for the Devil
Let’s raise a birthday toast to Mick Jagger, who turns 75 today — over 50 years after he sang “The lines around my eyes are protected by a copyright law” on Aftermath. After all these years in the public eye, he remains the ultimate rock & roll trickster. He’s the most visible of rock stars, yet also one of the most mysterious and unfathomable — not to mention the funniest. He’s the most elusive of the Rolling Stones — anybody can tell right away what’s cool about Keith or Charlie or Woody,

Jessica Jones: This Is Where You've Seen Dr. Karl Malus Before

Image Source: Netflix Our favorite female-driven Marvel series is back. Jessica Jones season two is now currently streaming on Netflix, and a new season means that new characters have been introduced, one of these being scientist Dr. Karl Malus. You're probably wondering where you've seen him before, and we're here to help. Hint: he's been in a lot of TV shows. The name behind the familiar actor's face is Callum Keith Rennie. Although he might be new to the Marvel universe, he has been in film and television for decades. The 57-year-old actor is considered to have found acting late in life, starting theater at the age of 25, but he definitely has made up for lost time. Although Rennie had his first credit in 1993, the first role he's really known for is the character of Dodd in 2000's Memento alongside Guy Ritchie.

Gerard Butler Reveals How His Accident Means Time To Change

Gerard Butler Reveals How His Accident Means Time To Change
Gerard Butler has opened up on his surfing accident that he had during the filming of 'Chasing Mavericks', revealing it's made him realise it's time to share more movie-making fun with stuntmen.

"It was very painful, not being able to breathe for a long time," he remembered of his time beneath the water.

"It's like you're in an avalanche, and you don't know if you're ever coming up, and you can't breathe and there's nothing you can do about it. You think, 'Why did I do this, what was I thinking?' And it's too late.

"I know there are a lot of people who had those thoughts and never made it back up.

And I did make it back up, but then it all started all over again because nobody could get to me, so I went down again twice, and that really put the fear of god into me.

Thrush Remembers Tootoosis At Gemini Awards

  • WENN
Canadian actress Michelle Thrush paid tribute to her late Blackstone co-star Gordon Tootoosis as she picked up a trophy at the Gemini Awards on Wednesday.

Thrush won the Best Actress in a Drama prize for her role as an alcoholic mother living on the fictional Blackstone Indian reserve, and the star used her acceptance speech to remember Tootoosis, who died in July.

She told the audience at the ceremony in Toronto, Canada, "About 23 years ago when I began acting, there weren't a lot of brown faces on television and Gordon was one of a handful. He urged me as a teenager to get into acting."

Other winners at the annual TV awards included Tracy Dawson, who was named Best Actress in a Comedy, for Call Me Fitz, Callum Keith Rennie (Best Actor in a Drama, for Shattered) and Peter Keleghan (Best Actor in a Comedy, for 18 to Life).

Call Me Fitz was a big winner at the awards ceremony - it landed six other honours including Best Director and Best Writing. The Borgias landed the Best Drama Series prize, while the Rick Mercer Report was named Best Comedy Series.

Shattered – a stonking showcase for its mesmerising hero

It's all about a homicide detective with multiple personality disorder – and Callum Keith Rennie is just the man for the role

I love Callum Keith Rennie. I loved him in Don McKellar's film Last Night, I loved him as Lew Ashby in Californication, I loved him above all as Detective Stanley Raymond Kowalski in the later series of Due South. I even sat through David Cronenberg's eXistenZ just to see him, and that's a Jennifer Jason Leigh-filled two hours of my life I'm never getting back.

He's a brilliant, mercurial actor, alternately twinkling and smirking, calm and volatile, intense and insouciant, intelligent and suddenly adrift. He turns on a sixpence and it is quite mesmerising to watch.

As such, he is the perfect choice to play the lead in the new police drama Shattered (Mondays, Hallmark). Ben Sullivan is a homicide detective with multiple personality disorder. It's been in apparent abeyance,

In the pilot titled "The Sins of Fathers", homicide detective Ben Sullivan (Callum Keith Rennie) gets a new partner in the person of Amy Sullivan (Camille Sullivan), a detective who just got transferred from the Sex Offences Division of the Vancouver Police Department. As soon as they're bonded, Sullivan and and Lynch are put on a homicide case involving a dead child.

As he sees the body of the dead child, Ben's mind is taken over by his most violent alter. While he and his partner were chasing a killer, Ben (or rather someone else) grabs the killer, but gets thrown to the ground.
