Channel 4 To ‘Hang’ Gary Glitter In New Drama
Well if Channel 4 have anything to do with it – Gary Glitter.
The Execution of Gary Glitter, which will be aired on Monday 9th November, is set in a Britain where the death penalty has been reintroduced and convicted paedophile Glitter is the first to be tried.
Writer and director Rob Coldstream apparently believes that shooting the fallen pop-star would be a waste of bullets however, so in the programme, he will be hanged – Nice.
“High-profile crimes against children often prompt calls for the death penalty,” said Channel 4’s head of documentaries Hamish Mykura. “This drama confronts the public with what many say they want”.
