About the questions

You will be able to submit your questions (paper copy) on the day of the show via a collection box. There is no limit on the number of questions you can put in.  Make sure your name is added to any extra questions you write.  You will be given a copy of your question if it is selected for the programme.

Questions should be focussed around what’s been in the news this week or the day of recording. Questions chosen regularly touch on political, economic, social and moral issues of the day. As a nationwide broadcast, national or international issues are most likely to be chosen.

 Please keep your questions short.
