Free Speech, Series 1 Episode 3 of 12

Jake Humphrey hosts a live debate show from Bristol. Broadcast from a different location around the country each month, it gives BBC Three viewers the chance to have their say about the issues they care about. Up for debate are drugs and whether they should be legalised, and the soaring unemployment rate for black men - is it time to have 'young black men first' employment policies?

On the panel is BBC Three presenter Cherry Healey, while co-presenter Michelle de Swarte is the live contact point for viewers at home having their say online. Free Speech viewers have their say on the programme agenda, and the Free Speech power bar shows what the audience thinks of the panellists. Responses are displayed throughout transmission as viewers use hashtags to rate panellists in real time.
