Any Questions? This flagship BBC programme, first broadcast in October 1948, is coming to Calne as part of our Music and Arts Festival and will be broadcast live from the John Bentley School Hall on BBC Radio 4 at 8pm. Chaired by Jonathan Dimbleby, every week Any Questions visits a different part of the country with a panel of four speakers made up of leading politicians, union leaders and other household names who answer questions from local people on the major issues of the day. Always controversial, and often making the day’s news headlines, it is an event not to be missed.
