‘Topical discussion in which a panel of personalities from the worlds of politics, media and elsewhere are posed questions by the audience. From a different location each week.’
To be honest the guests and the questions this week, to me, weren’t that inspiring, but it was a great evening and I was really glad to be there. There must have been hundreds of questions submitted and so given there were only 10 questions picked it was no surprise my two questions didn’t get selected.
I was very impressed with Jonathan Dimbleby. I do admire the ability of these people to handle vast amounts of complex information and have it to hand or head. The panel really do not know the questions beforehand.
For what it’s worth here’s my two rejected questions:
1) Will the re-alignment of marriage find the Bible in court?
2) Shouldn’t we speak plainly and call the abortion of millions of defenseless babies Genocide?
They didn’t get picked but they are out there as issues regardless.
It was a lovely evening and we were thanked for giving up a beautiful evening to spend it listening to a panel discussion. Pity the BBC with wealth enough to wine, dine & chauffeur the panel didn’t have the courtesy to provide us all with free bottles of water. We had to buy our own at 50p each!
Apologies for the poor quality picture and although it doesn’t show it by the time they started broadcasting the hall was packed. That was my first experience of a live radio broadcast. It was great fun.
