On Friday 2nd May Knowle West Media Centre had the honour of hosting the national broadcast of BBC Radio 4’s flagship political panel programme Any Questions?
Over 120 people packed into the KWMC studio to hear the panel, chaired by Jonathan Dimbleby, debate five questions that were posed by the audience. The questions touched on topical issues including violence in schools, rent control and the increasing use of foodbanks across the UK.
An outside broadcast space was set up outside the building for those who weren’t able to get tickets, with strawbale seating, a speaker system and a big screen television showing a live feed from the debate. Local businesses Spicer’s Catering and Zoomoffee provided delicious refreshments.
Any Questions? was broadcast live from KWMC on BBC Radio 4 and BBC Radio Bristol and the panelists were:
- Farming Minister George Eustice MP
- Media Executive Kelvin Mackenzie
- Food writer and poverty campaigner Jack Monroe
- Shadow Transport Secretary Mary Creagh MP
