Monica Lierhaus was a very public person before she has been handicaped. Monica Lierhaus was a popular link man for sports. I don't know people with physical handcaped at tv too. Only one, she is condergan and link man at a handicaped tv-show. All other german handicap tv persons was at tv bevor they has been handicaped. icon_wink.gif

Hi Karin

I just read about this poor young man who had an accident during show. That must have been horrible to watch! I hope they didnt broadcasted that very show afterwards...

But it's nice to read that there are disabled people on screen in Germany! There arent a lot on BBC. As far as I know there is only one show for the deaf where deaf people are doing the show of course. but that's just that disability show you've mentioned.

It's a shame that there arent more disabled people working on screen! I dont see any problem for a wheelchair user reading the daily news, do I.

Regards, Essi

Hi Essi,

yes, the accident at this betting show was horrible to see. Thomas Gottschalk, the show master, and all looker of this show was shocked. My hometown and me, wehre this show has play, was shocked too. After Samuel Koch's accident Thomas Gottschalk stopped the show directly and at the end of this year he will stopp to be show master for this show "Wetten Dass" ("betting this"). Since this accidend, it's a half year ago, Samuel Koch stay in a paraplegic hospital in Zürich/Switzerland.

Last weak Samuel Koch give his first televison interview. He say he look positiv to the futur and he is shure he can walk home, when he leaf this hospital. I can't belief it. He can only move one arm. And he say he will do this jumping over car betting again, when he get the chance. He say his accident was not comming from this jumping over car betting. It was bad luck, not more. icon_wink.gif

Best regards,
Karin

P.S: In germany we had a handicap daily news reader at a morning televison show, some years ago. His name is Stefan Kulle. He was television reporter before he has his accident. He is paraplegic and learned walking. He write a book and leafe the televison.
