Porn Again at Radio 5 Live

Former Home Secretary Jacqui Smith is to investigate the pornography industry in the UK, for a special 5 Live documentary.

The show, called Porn Again, will speak to film-makers and actors, philosophers and feminists, politicians and commentators on March 3rd.

It will be the first time Jacqui Smith has talked about the subject since porn films appeared in her MP's expenses claims about her own attitudes to the industry.

"As I know from my personal experience, porn fascinates us – media and public alike. But we actually know very little about what it's like to work in the industry and what porn is doing to our society, our children and our relationships," Jacqui Smith said.

"In making this programme, I've been able to challenge my own views and attitudes and I want others to have the chance to join the debate too."

Jacqui was at the centre of one of the more memorable incidents during the MPs' expenses scandal of 2009 when it was reported that she had mistakenly claimed for the cost of two pornographic films. In an exclusive documentary Ms Smith talks about the porn industry, its protagonists and the men and women who consume it.

The programme will be broadcast on Thursday 3 March from 9.30pm to 10.30pm. It will be followed by a special edition of the Tony Livesey Show, where Jacqui Smith talks to Tony and takes calls from listeners.

The 60-minute programme is produced by Tonic Media And Productions Ltd for BBC Radio 5 Live.
