What is the point of these shows?

QT in general?

I love it. Nobody particularly comes off well but I find it consistently entertaining. And I really like Dimbleby.

A lot of it is just fluff though. Politicians reciting rote spiel, dumb ass types like that lass on the left.

Ah yeah.

But, you know, no hiding place. It's a good thing.

I laugh a lot too. Audience members talking shite, Dimbleby being cheeky, politicians trapped. All kinds of fun.

She's the CEO of a football club, by the way. One of only two women in the country who do that or something.

She's fucking simple

I love it when I hear Brexiteers come out with that “let’s get on with it” line. It’s comical - if only we were all as practical and efficient as they are, there wouldn’t be any etc. etc.

I had Sky News on in the background the other day and some senile old fuck was talking about Brexit and how the British people had voted to leave and their wishes must be respected and so on and then he said – talking in capital letters just like you say – “let’s just GET ON WITH IT”. At that point I had to get up and see who was talking. Jeffrey Archer! Senile old fuck.

I was in the audience when QT was in Exeter a few years ago. The panel included Michael Winner, Peter Hain, Francis Maude and some instantly forgettable lib dem.

Interesting experience : you have to apply for tickets and answer a questionnaire. Had to get to the venue a while before it went on air, and submit your questions in writing. David Dimbleby was mingling with everyone and seemed very affable.

Once we were in the room itself, they did a practice q and a, before it went on air. There's a few minutes' delay between filming and broadcast to allow for unsavoury incidents.

I just googled it - 2005, apparently. Still felt the need to go home and have a long shower afterwards, though. :shock:

how did they know there'd be offensive language before the LIVE show had even started? :?

It’s live in front of an audience, not live in real time.

Yes but there's only a five-minute lag. Or so I was led to believe.

Is the programme live?
Question Time is recorded in front of a live audience from around 2030 GMT each Thursday. The reasons for not broadcasting live at 2235 GMT are to limit inconvenience to spectators and guests (enabling them to appear on the programme at locations across the country and still return to their homes at a reasonable hour) and maximise the number of leading politicians and political commentators willing to take part in the programme.

Yep, I was an audience member back in 1991 and remember it being filmed at about 730 or so.

I did it a couple of years earlier in Brighton Corn Exchange Peter Sissons was in the chair - it was still light outside.
I've been talking about writing a book - 25 years of TEFL - for a few years now. I've got it in me.

Anyway, there were several examples of offensive racial terms used, but just from the panel to make a point.

Earlier in the programme one of the audience members said that criminals who kill using knives should be 'exterminated'. I have to say it was quite funny, 'cos the word came at the end of his little speech, and up until that point the audience had been with him, cheering and bits of applause. When he ended with that, there was an audible gasp followed by dead silence for a couple of seconds.

Jordan Peterson was pretty good, I thought.

Only two or three more shows with Dimbleby :(
