In the UK
Heroin Addicts can get given methadone.
Alcoholics can get given booze.

Does that mean i'll be given some low scoring games?
Maybe even a second hand copy of Too Human or Lair?

World of Warcraft should be banned or at least treated like alcohol or tobbaco, with its corresponding restrictions

This is absolute nonsense. It's just another chance for lazy armchair pundits to be duped by a bunch of knee-jerk reactions, hyperbole and bias, so that they will actually believe that games are bad for their kids.

There's no way this will be an unbiased programme, it'll likely feature a bunch of uninitiated 'experts' who have barely played a game in their life.

I don't know, the BBC is not so biased.

They usually show both sides of the argument. I reckon they'll come to the conclusion that 'it depends'...

BBC & Channel 4 are world renowned for presenting the best & fairest angle on the subjects shown in their documentaries.

They ain't exactly like Fox, who love turning the stupid & ignorant into scaremongering, prejudiced bigots.

I'm likely to get annoyed watching this. Idiots who don't know what they're talking about seem to love making wild accusations about what gaming DOES, but are so ill-informed that anything they say is nonsense.

And those who watch it will believe their media-spin.

Already getting annoyed...
