It's a Mad World

Free Speech, Series 2 Episode 5 of 8

Free Speech asks if modern life is driving us mad, as it tackles the big talking points raised by BBC Three's highly-acclaimed season on mental health. The panel debates whether social media is harming the mental health of young people and whether the NHS could be doing more to help.

Live from Edinburgh, where the Festival is in full swing, the panel includes a comedian who is in town for the Fringe as well as politicians from both sides of the independence debate discussing whether Prince George of Cambridge should ever be King of Scotland.

Presenter Rick Edwards chairs proceedings, with a live audience of 150 people aged 16-25. Tina Daheley (Radio 1 Newsbeat), gathers the Twitter, Facebook and website messages from viewers at home.
