Channel 4's chief creative officer Jay Hunt announced yesterday that the channel is planning a four-part series entitled Drugs Live. The clue's in the title; the programme will show class-A drugs being taken live on television. 

TV watchdog services & national newspapers are already up in arms over these controversial plans, while Ms Hunt is keen to point out that the drugs will not be administered in a TV studio, but in a safe, supervised and monitored environment. She goes on to say "This is an incredibly thought-provoking social policy, which I think Channel 4 can be at the forefront of and actually provide some interesting and useful data on."

The show is planned to air later this year. Watch this space.
