Television presenter Jeremy Kyle's documentary about Prince of Wales Road in Norwich is to air next week.
The Kyle File - Dangers Of A Night Out explores drinking culture and the dangers revellers face on a night out in Britain. It uses Norwich as a case study.
The programme information states: 'He visits Norwich, which perhaps surprisingly appears in statistics as one of the top five places for drink-related hospital admissions in the UK.'
The documentary also hears from two families affected by tragedies caused directly by drinking and the man who represents the night-time industry in Britain.
The controversial television presenter visited the city in September for filming and spent the night exploring Norwich's nightclub hub where he chatted with staff from the East of England Ambulance Service, the SOS bus and visited some of the city's clubs.
