Magaluf! Free Speech Special

Free Speech, Series 2 Episode 4 of 8

Free Speech goes to the beach with a summer special live from the sands of Magaluf. With the lights of the Mallorca resort's famous strip as a backdrop, presenter Rick Edwards hears from an audience of holidaymakers, reps, locals and ex-pats.

Free Speech prides itself on going where its audience goes and reflecting their lives through the issues and topics debated on the show. And in the summer, this audience heads to the sun. Magaluf attracts over two million Brits a year, the majority of them young and drawn there by sun, sea, sex and enormous quantities of cheap booze. For many of them it's a rite of passage, marking the transition to adulthood which is so intrinsic to BBC Three.

BAFTA-award winning actor and director Adam Deacon joins the panel to discuss issues such the boozed-up reputation of the British abroad and whether leaving the EU would enhance job prospects for young people.

Rick hears the opinions of the studio audience, with Tina Daheley (Radio 1 Newsbeat) relaying Twitter, Facebook and website messages from viewers at home.
