'Jerry Springer-The Opera' tells the story of a day in the job of world famous talk-show host, Jerry Springer.

The BBC announced filming the West End production in 2004 and had to deal with thousands of viewer complaints - with certain religious groups threatening to sue the BBC if they go on and broadcast the musical.
Despite the controversy , the musical aired on January 8th, 2005. The BBC also released the show on DVD the following year.
