BBC Three's fully interactive, live debate show takes on the Olympics.
From the heart of the East End of London, presenter Jake Humphrey finds out what young people really think. Has the enormous spend reaped economic benefits for under 30s or has the budget been blown on a glorified sports event? Who are the real winners - local people or big business? A nationwide poll reveals how young people feel about the Olympics and whether or not it has benefitted them. Plus, audience and panel tackle the very latest stories that are firing up viewers.
Free Speech involves the audience from beginning to end - from the stories they want on the agenda to showing whether they agree or disagree with the panellists' opinions via the power bar. Responses and updates from viewers will be displayed throughout the show, with hashtags that reveal how panellists are being rated live by people at home.
On the panel, local Labour MP Rushanara Ali and skills minister John Hayes MP go head to head. Free Speech's social media jockey will be the audience's voice, reading web responses and online comments.
