Question Time coming to Dudley
BBC’s Question Time is coming to Dudley.
A panel yet to be confirmed will discuss and debate topical issues at Dudley Town Hall on Thursday March 7, with people from the borough able to apply to the BBC to be part of a 150-strong audience.
It will be the second time Question Time has visited Dudley.
The first was in March 2009, with Douglas Alexander, Andrew Mitchell, Shirley Williams, Toby Young and Germaine Greer on the panel with Sedgley born broadcaster Brad Baker in the audience on that occasion.
Councillor Khurshid Ahmed, cabinet member for regeneration, planning and economic investment, said:
“We are delighted to be hosting Question Time at the Town Hall, giving us the chance to showcase the borough’s premier entertainment venue on a national stage.
“I look forward to a lively debate and seeing the people of Dudley put some testing questions to the panel on the issues that affect them.”
Question Time first aired in September 1979. It is now hosted by Fiona Bruce and airs every Thursday night, having previously been chaired by Sir Robin Day (1979-1989), Peter Sissons (1989-1993) and David Dimbleby (1994-2018).
