Free Speech, Series 1 Episode 11 of 12

Duration: 1 hour

BBC Three's monthly live current affairs debate programme presented Rick Edwards comes live from Liverpool.

Rick hears the opinions of the studio audience on the big stories of the day, with Tina Daheley relaying the web responses and online comments.

Last month saw the debate get heated over same sex marriage, but what will get the panel and the audience hot under the collar this month?

The panel includes outspoken singer Kate Nash, and on the night that BBC Three broadcasts Give it Up for Comic Relief, Free Speech asks if addiction is a medical or criminal issue.

Free Speech offers its viewers the chance to talk about the issues that matter to them. Follow the debate and get involved via bbc.co.uk/freespeech; facebook.com/bbcfreespeech; @bbcfreespeech; #freespeech.
