Glitter 'Hanged' In New Tv Show

TV bosses in Britain are set to spark controversy with a fictional new show in which paedophile rocker GARY GLITTER is "hanged" for his crimes.
The star - real name Paul Gadd - was jailed in Vietnam in 2005 for sexually assaulting two young girls. He was released in 2008 and returned to his native U.K.
Gadd's story will now be used as part of a new show set in an imaginary Britain, where the death penalty has been re-introduced.
The 1970s rock glam star becomes the first person to be tried under a new Capital Crimes Against Children law.
The Execution of Garry Glitter, billed as a "courtroom drama shot in the style of a documentary", will air on U.K. TV network Channel 4 in November (09).
Head of documentaries at the network, Hamish Mykura,says, "High-profile crimes against children often prompt calls for the return of the death penalty - this drama confronts the public with what many say they want. Putting a resonant figure like Gary Glitter into a fictional situation helps to engage the viewer as the drama unfolds."
