In the 1970s I recall being in the studio audience for a panel discussion about transport issues (maybe congestion in London, I don’t remember precisely).
James Hunt was on the panel of worthies, but I can’t remember any of the others. Shortly into the programme, a number of women stood up and shouted about the plight of female prisoners in Armagh Gaol.
After the security staff had failed to silence or evict the women, the programme was aborted and order restored. The producer then asked if audience and panellists would like to resume the original discussion.
James responded that the plight of women prisoners in Northern Ireland was probably an issue that should be discussed, at which his fellow speakers gaped incredulously. David Lonsdale, Wokingham, Berks
