The search is on to find Britain's best young speaker in this eight-part series. From across the UK, thousands of 14- to 18-year-olds applied in a bid to become The Speaker. They spoke out about what really matters to them: from knife crime to teenage love; global warming to vampires; pop music to mixed race families.
The judges - comedian Jo Brand, motivational speaker John Amaechi and performance expert Jeremy Stockwell - toured the UK in their mission to find the best. At the end of the series, only one person will be crowned The Speaker.
The search begins with the first regional auditions from Glasgow and London.
