Pro-life campaigners have criticised the move, saying it amounted to "free advertising" for abortion.

Victoria Derbyshire, who will present the show on BBC Radio Five Live, said it would give an insight "into an area of British life which is taboo".

The clinic involved in the programme has not been named yet.

"What we want to do is to talk to everybody involved who works in a clinic - the receptionist, the doctors, the consultants, the counsellors, and, if patients agree, we will talk to them," she said.

A spokeswoman for the Prolife Alliance said: "This latest initiative from the abortion lobby will inevitably provide free advertising for the organisation in question which surely cannot qualify as an exercise in objective journalism."
