BBC Radio 4 host panel show at Rhondda campus

Last week, Coleg y Cymoedd welcomed BBC Radio 4 for a live recording of one of its popular panel shows.

The college’s Rhondda campus hosted the radio channel’s ‘Any questions?’ show – a topical discussion programme hosted by Chris Mason which sees a panel of personalities from the worlds or politics, media and elsewhere answer a number of questions posed to them by a live audience.

The event was attended by members of the public as well as learners and staff from the college. Panel members included politicians Delyth Jewel MS, Nick Thomas-Symonds MP, Bob Sealy MP and Wera Hobhouse MP.

During the show, four questions were put forward to the panel by the audience. Learners attending the event also had the opportunity to get a behind the scenes insight into how the show is put together as well as gain first-hand knowledge of the making of the programme from the production team.

Performing Arts learner, Katie Griffiths, 18 was one of the individuals selected to have her question put forward.

Katie questioned the panel about whether they supported the full relaxation of travel restrictions in the UK from the end of March in light of  the latest Covid-19 variant emerging numbers.  

Katie said “When I asked the question, I felt nervous, but it was a great experience. I found it interesting seeing a debate in person, as well as hearing the different points of each MP. I didn’t agree with all the opinions but found the panel was a great way to broaden my mindset on various topics.”
