TICKETS AVAILABLE FOR ‘QUESTION TIME’ ON CAMPUS

 

Tickets are now available for the BBC’s ‘Question Time’ programme which is to be broadcast from the Lincoln campus of the University of Lincolnshire & Humberside next month.

 

The political panel debate will come from the university’s atrium on Thursday 8th February. Filming will take place between 8pm and 9.30pm and the programme will be broadcast as live on BBC1 at 10.35pm on Thursday evening.

 

Those who wish to book free tickets for the broadcast should not call the university. Instead contact the BBC’s audience co-ordinator on 01299 829299.

 

Regular chairman David Dimbleby will present the programme, in which five political members of a panel are subjected unprepared to questions from an audience made up of members of the public.

 

This latest announcement is more good news for the university, which has already hosted two major BBC broadcasts at its new campus in the past two years.

 

BBC Radio 4 broadcast  ‘Any Questions’ from the university in December 1998, and in July 2000 Radio Five Live’s ‘Any Sporting Questions’ was recorded on campus.
