Porn Again for Jacqui Smith

Posted: February 2, 2011

The BBC has announced that former Home Secretary Jacqui Smith is making a documentary about pornography for the corporation. Smith is an imaginative choice because she resigned her cabinet post in the last Labour government after it was revealed that she claimed back the costs of two pay-per-view porn films on her parliamentary expenses.

It later emerged that her husband had ordered the films while Smith was away from the marital home. She lost her seat as a Member of Parliament for Redditch in the 2010 General Election.

The Smith programme – Porn Again – is scheduled to be broadcast on BBC Radio 5 Live at 9.30pm on 3rd March. It will be followed by the Tony Livesey Show in which the former minister will take calls from listeners.

Smith told the BBC: “From my own 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.”

ETO has also learned that ITV’s This Morning intends going ‘behind the scenes’ at a porn shoot and interviewing performers and producers for a programme that is being broadcast in February.
