BBCs Panorama turns on video games

As if accusing FIFA execs of bribery wasn’t enough, next week BBC’s Panorama threatens to lift the lid on ‘games addiction’.

Panorama said its revelations could ‘jinx’ and damage the hosting bid – and the games special is no less dogged.

The episode finds out why some people are calling for more research”.

Panorama: Addicted To Games? airs on Monday, December 6th.
