The BBC has created a controversy by announcing it is to broadcast its political panel programme Question Time from inside a prison for the first time.
Ten Wormwood Scrubs inmates and 10 staff will join 100 members of the public in the audience next Thursday.
We sent our reporters out on to the street to find out what you thought about Question Time going to a prison.
|“I think it’s great. Much like everyone else, I want to know what the panel think about the escalating price of sexual favours on D Wing.”
Dave Randel, Economist
|“About time too. I asked weeks ago if the cuts to police budgets went far enough, at least now I’ll have some audience support.”
Brenda Short, Anarchist
|“I’m not a fan of the show to be honest, but I’ll watch it purely on the off-chance someone tries to make Dimbleby their bitch.”
Nick Logan, Voyeur
“I’ve been watching politicians on that programme for years, so hearing the opinions of criminals that are actually in prison will make an interesting change.”
Sheila James, Housewife
“I’ve been applying to be in the audience for months with no joy, so I’ve just mugged an old lady so I can be ready for Thursday’s recording.”
Max Haynes, Student
