Tonight’s broadcast will be a controversial one. Regardless of whether or not you agree with it being aired, the decision has been made. It will be a spectacle, but it will also raise some difficult questions: what relationship do you want to have to the things we consume, and what responsibility do you want to take for their production? You can be the change you wish to see, as we go ‘beyond the gates’…
