It's massive scale and the attention to detail was really, really amazing. Except for the impossible cutlery that nobody could use. I don't know, whoever designed that - that was the one design flaw. We were given these like forks and they were like absolutely pathetic."Smith: "Well they weren't forks because they were two-pronged, weren't they? They were curved. They were missing a prong."Considine: "They were like a prong and you were trying to pick stuff up and it'd just fall off, and you know, it was embarrassing."++ENDS ON SOUNDBITE++AP VIDEO SHOT BYPRODUCTION:===========================================================Clients are reminded: (i) to check the terms of their licence agreements for use of content outside news programming and that further advice and assistance can be obtained from the AP Archive on: Tel +44 (0) 20 7482 7482 Email: info@aparchive.com(ii) they should check with the applicable collecting society in their Territory regarding the clearance of any sound recording or performance included within the AP Television News service (iii) they have editorial responsibility for the use of all and any content included within the AP Television News service and for libel, privacy, compliance and third party rights applicable to their Territory.
