WEYMOUTH will be hitting national television screens when a popular politics show comes to the town.

BBC debate show Question Time hosted by David Dimbleby, pictured, will be screened from Weymouth College on Thursday, January 24. The programme pits questions from a local audience against a panel of guests including politicians and media experts.

Vice principal at Weymouth College Rob Jones said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for the college as it will give our media students the opportunity to get involved with the set up and production of the programme, and the opportunity to interact with the BBC staff and presenter David Dimbleby.”
