Jacqui Smith discusses pornography in Britain


Jacqui Smith has made a documentary for BBC Radio 5 live looking at pornography in Britain today.

The former Home Secretary discusses her findings on 5 live Breakfast: "Me, and a lot of other people, don't know much about it."

The ex-MP was embarrassed in 2009 when it was revealed that her husband had watched pornographic movies on paid TV, then she accidentally used parliamentary expenses to foot the bill.

"For purposes of research I did watch the sort of pornography that's available on the internet," Smith tells Nicky Campbell.

"One of the most interesting things... the people that work in the industry, I liked them more than I thought I would."

Porn Again is broadcast at 21:30 on Thursday 3 March on BBC Radio 5 live.
