View Full Version : Kill it, cook it, eat it
Did anyone watch it?
I did, and even though my flatmates ran away when the cow started kicking I thought it was very interesting.
Guess that I'll have to catch a repeat.
Personally don't have a problem - done enough hunting/fishing that it doesn't bother me.
I was planning on watching the repeat at 1am but I guess I fell asleep during that "Help, My Dog's as Fat as Me".
EDIT: Apparently it's Lamb tonight - So i'll be watching that, love a bit of Lamb :)
Is this on terrestrial TV?
Or BBC 3 or something, It looked interesting. (but I only have channels 1-4 :[ )
Yeh, its on BBC3
Excuse Double Post.
10 mins time (10:30) on BBC3 the next in the 3 part series.
I wanted to watch it but missed it, got tonights on to Sky+
I think it's important for People to see what happens from slaughter to plate, some Kids watching were upset apparently so I read in the paper, bet they'd happily go to Mcdonalds and KFC and not think about what they were eating came from, as do many others I don't doubt....
I like watching Hugh Fernley Whittinstall's tales from river cottage series, he rears his own Animals for slaughter.... though it did upset me seeing a ickle Piggy destined for slaughter trotting up to him wagging it's tail... dunno why it upset me, I think it reminded me of a Pet! if it hadn't of wagged it's tail i'd of been ok :( daft i know :p
I don't think I'd need to watch it.
Have seen most things being slaughtered, and even helped in the process.
Benefits of growing up on a farm :)
i missed it wanted to watch it :(
and love river cottage, we keep chickens in my back yard, although they are just for the eggs if one gets old or ill then we just neck them. better than letting it suffer, and i also bet a hell of a lot of people dont give the slightest thought about what they are eating. i will only eat orangic veg and stuff.
I just watched the two shows ( lamb and Pork ) I recorded and thought they were brilliant!
I thought the subject was handled with sensitivity, and everyone was well informed at each stage, they stressed how well the Animals were treated before slaughter, I liked how it showed the Farmers that reared them, a good Farmer has the utmost respect and cares for his stock and they showed that...
I hope it gets People thinking about the way Animals are treated before during and after anyway, and educate them a little during the process.
My Dad used to keep Turkeys in the run up to Christmas for his mate who ran a Turkey Farm when I was little, we'd keep them, fatten them up before slaughter... me and Bro's used to help out with the process from neck wringing to gutting...
Yeha ive been whatching this, it's interesting as you all say but im not sure still, dont think tis going to put many people of emat, or encourgae more people to eat meat though, Just good to know what happens to our meat atleast but still remember that just because this slaughter house is clean etc doens't mean hey all will!
