Generation Xcess looks at how twenty-somethings entertain themselves on a typical Saturday night. It is a culture of excess - binge drinking, drugs, sex and getting into fights.
This is a generation with no boundaries and few taboos. Eight different stories will be spread across the four programmes including some cool Hoxton clubbers, a local rugby team and a group of Brighton students who love to experiment.
We capture evidence of their lifestyle on camera - then show them footage of precisely what they get up to under the influence. Do they have any regrets? Do they even remember? The results can often be surprising. Psychologists and medical experts also comment on their behaviour. (Source: September Films)
Tonight, in Brighton a group of lads have a heavy night of drug-taking, pulling girls and fighting. Meanwhile, across town, gay student Matt and his cousin Jess take a cocktail of drugs that include cocaine, ecstasy and speed before spend the next morning recovering by inhaling deodorant. How will the two groups react when they see footage from the night before?
