The search is on to find Britain's best young speaker in this eight-part series. From across the UK, thousands of 14- to 18-year-olds applied in a bid to become The Speaker. They spoke out about what really matters to them: from knife crime to teenage love; global warming to vampires; pop music to mixed-race families. The judges - comedian Jo Brand, motivational speaker John Amaechi and performance expert Jeremy Stockwell - toured the UK in their mission to find the best. At the end of the series, only one person will be crowned The Speaker.
