Episode Seven - The Majority

Does our vote matter? We follow the development of our new interactive show The Majority, which lets the audience cast votes to change the outcome of the performance. But what happens when you give an audience control? We talk to experts in polling and audience behaviour to address the slippery idea of how large groups make decisions, and confront complicated moral choices with real-life consequences. Please note this episode contains strong language.
