‘Question Time’ comes to St Andrews

Monday 10 May 2004

Students at the University of St Andrews will play host to David Dimbleby later this week when the flagship BBC programme Question Time broadcasts from the student union.

Featuring political figures from Westminster and the Scottish Parliament, Question Time is a mainstay of BBC broadcasting.

First broadcast on September 25th 1979, the show has been chaired by Sir Robin Day, Peter Sissons and David Dimbleby. The line-up for the St Andrews edition – to be filmed on Thursday May 13th – is not yet confirmed, but will certainly contain major politicians from around Scotland.

The Students’ Association President, Derek MacLeod, said:

“We are very pleased to be able to host this recording of Question Time, allowing townsfolk and students the chance to quiz their elected representatives¿.

The event is jointly hosted by the Students’ Association and the University’s International Politics Association – a student society with a long history of bringing distinguished speakers to the town, including FW de Klerk, Michael Douglas, Kate Adie and Lord Owen.

If you wish to be in the audience for the recording, visit http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/programm es/question_time to apply for tickets.
