(And we made one up ourselves.) With those questions and the answers they prompted, we bring you the TV Club…

76 trombones, 110 cornets, 10,000 marbles: 11 parades gone awry

Whenever you’re likely to come across a parade in film or television, you’re just as likely to come across a parade gone terribly, horribly wrong.
