Any Questions? at Blundell's

Published Thursday 27th of February 2014 02:15:50 PM

Pupils at Blundell's in Devon gained an insight into public life as well as broadcasting when the BBC Radio 4 programme Any Questions? was broadcast live from the school. More than 400 people, including parents, past and present pupils and the local community, attended the event, and watched as the panel Secretary of State for Scotland Alistair Carmichael, Conservative backbench MP Nadhim Zahawi, New Statesman columnist Laurie Penny and Labour backbench MP Frank Field debated questions put by the audience on topics of the day, such as Kiev, food banks, Scottish independence and whether it was a good idea to put a calorie count on bottles of wine! Ten sixth formers, most of whom are studying politics, helped at the event and mixed with panel members and chair Jonathan Dimbleby at a reception after the broadcast.
