Grey Cornish weather did little to dampen an air of anticipation at Falmouth University today, as BBC Radio 4 prepared to broadcast, Any Questions? live from Penryn Campus.
The weekly political debate chaired by Johnathan Dimbleby will be a unique opportunity for people to pose questions directly to a panel of policy makers, writers, thinkers and politicians.
A team of students from the University have helped the BBC production team set the scene and Truthfal caught up with 2nd year BA(Hons) Journalism student, Kieran Buggs to hear about his role:
“I managed to secure myself the longest shift just as a Production Runner for anything they need throughout the day.
“Radio 4’s Any Questions is a big radio show so it’s been great to get involved and see behind the scenes.
“We’ve been helping to set up all the equipment and have it all prepared for when the team arrive for testing before the show goes on air.”
Joining the presenter will be four high profile panelists, the Chair of the Eden Project and Gardens of Heligan, Sir Tim Smit KBE, Labour MP for Birkenhead Frank Field, Editor of The Canary Kerry Anne Mendoza and Dr Theresa Coffey, the Conservative MP for Suffolk coastal Parliamentary Undersecretary.
The debate will cover a host of topics raised by members of the audience and will be broadcast live from 8pm on BBC Radio 4.
