Question Time will be doing a show in Shanghai in two weeks' time, anyone can apply to be in the audience. More info:


Question Time is the premier political debating programme on television in the United Kingdom. Each week, presenter David Dimbleby chairs a panel of politicians and other prominent figures from public life for an engaging public debate.

On Thursday 10 March, 2005 the BBC One programme is to be broadcast from Shanghai, China. The panel will consist of a wide variety of political views, from within China and from outside.

Chinese Government spokesman Liu Jianchao, Wild Swans author Jung Chang and former Hong Kong Governor and EU Commissioner Chris Patten have already agreed to take part in the programme, answering questions before a live studio audience. Also on the panel will be the designer and businessman, David Tang plus Mr Long Yongtu - General Secretary of the Boao Forum and Goodwill Ambassador to the UN Industrial Development Organisation.

I would be very interested to hear how the audience and their questions will be vetted. Although, having said that, if it's not going to be broadcast live (or at all) in China, I guess it doesn't matter.


PS There's potential here though. Antiques Roadshow at Panjiayuan. Songs of Praise in a secret house church in Anhui . . .
