Stephen Fry's Out There documentary was an insight into extreme homophobia and the life of gay people in various countries around the world.

So should it be shown to children?

Viewers were touched and horrified by the experiences and views of individuals from Russia, Brazil and India in last night's show.

People on Twitter were calling for it to be used as a way of educating youngsters about the dangers and stupidity of homophobia.

It even made it onto Gogglebox, making one man cry.


However, with adult themes and even scenes of execution, is it unsuitable for children?

At what age is a discussion about sex changes and the HIV epidemic in India appropriate?

Then again, with kids across the country calling for lessons more like QI - Stephen Fry's famous educational quiz show - it seems like if anyone could get this very important message across it's him.
