The controversial documentary film, Leaving Neverland is coming to the UK and you’ll be able to watch for free.

When is the Michael Jackson film on and what channel?

Leaving Neverland is going to be broadcast in the UK on the 6th and 7th March 2019 on Channel 4. The film, which will be split into two episodes, documents alleged abuse against two boys James Safechuck and Wade Robson.

The four-hour film, which will be shown in two, two hour programmes, has already proved controversial with fans of the late Michael Jackson and his family. It is due to broadcast on Channel 4 in the near future. The decision to broadcast the series has proved problematic for the channel after being deluged with messages of disapproval from users on Twitter.

In the film, both Wade Robson and James Safechuck allege that Michael Jackson began a long-running relationship with them. The Jackson Estate released a statement denoucing the film as”yet another lurid production in an outrageous and pathetic attempt to exploit and cash in on Michael Jackson.”

Speaking ahead of the documentary, filmmaker Dan Reed said in a statement, “If there’s anything we’ve learned during this time in our history, it’s that sexual abuse is complicated, and survivors’ voices need to be listened to.

The film was produced by Dan Reed and edited by Jules Cornell.

A note from the editor.

These are tough times for us all. Without a doubt. But we're here for you and want to continue being here for you for the foreseeable future. needs your help to survive. Due to the nature of the articles that we publish, we find it very hard to monetize our site and have been heavily restricted by ad platforms. This leaves us two ways of making money to keep this site going. 1) We run an online shop which we encourage you to visit and if you can make a purchase and 2) We run popup shops at the prides we media partner with. As you'll no doubt be aware the majority of pride events have been cancelled or postponed for 2020, which leaves our site at risk of closure.

Around 70 per cent of our funding comes from these popup shops. So we have a severe funding shortfall for 2020.

If just 100 people who use this site each donated £2 per month we'd be able to pay for the hosting for the rest of the year - meaning we can continue to keep THEGAYUK online. Please, if you can, consider donating £2 or whatever you can to keep us going.

Thank you.
