Television broadcaster will be airing a lockout special on Tuesday through its current affairs program The Feed.

Since the NSW government announced that former High Court judge Ian Callinan will be conducting the two-year review of the state's lockout laws, public reaction to the laws has grown. The Queensland government's vote in favour of stricter liquor licensing in the state has also kept the lockout out discussion front and centre.

Recently around 15,000 people marched through Sydney to protest against the laws and this weekend a further march will be held, protesting against the exclusion of The Star and Barangaroo casinos from Sydney's lockout zones.

The lockout special will be aired on Tuesday 22 March and will see a panel discuss all sides of the laws. The panel includes Keep Sydney Open's Tyson Koh, state senator David Leyonhjelm, Queensland minister Anthony Lynham and Michael Christie, father of coward punch victim Daniel Christie.

The debate will be streamed live through The Feed's Facebook page and will also feature questions from the audience.

SBS created a promo for the forum featuring Lee Lin Chin in a parody of Lara Bingle's "Where the bloody hell are you?" advert.
