Channel 4 on Monday night is featuring an episode of its Cutting Edge programme all about young people and swearing. Cunningly titled Mind Your F-ing Language, the programme will (according to the Channel 4 blurb) "reveal the rich and hidden world of the language that kids actually use, and look at one school's attempts to deal with swearing".
The programme is trailed by this article in today's Telegraph, which looks at the impact the swearing ban has had on the featured school.
A good idea or a load of bo****s - you decide.
