Vegetarians are Murderers: Translator's Note**) In the United Kingdom, various TV documentaries have illustrated the realities of this industry. Most notably, a chick gassing chamber was depicted on the now internationally known Jamie’s Fowl Dinners, itself causing a media frenzy when TV chef Jamie Oliver made an inappropriate joke on the oddity of the German TV viewers' reaction to the showing of gas chambers, reminiscent of mass slaughter of humans. Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall also produced a series called Hugh's Chicken Run, which investigated chickens kept in battery farms. This caused a similar media flurry, with coverage everywhere from the Observer, to a full page spread in the (British) Times newspaper.
In Germany, Tatort would be considered of similar popularity to the American crime drama, CSI.
