Question Time Premieres on BBC Three

Schools Question Time will get its debut on BBC Three on Thursday 9 July and BBC One has extended the current run of Question Time by a further two editions.

Schools Question Time airs first on BBC Three live at 8.00pm on 9 July and then broadcasts at the usual time of 10.35pm on BBC One.

This year’s Schools Question Time comes from Salford.

The 36-week series of Question Time, produced by Mentorn Media, has been extended with the BBC commissioning a further two episodes to run on 16 and 23 July, transmitting from Colchester and Stevenage.

Mentorn Media’s Executive Producer, Steve Anderson, said: “It’s been a remarkable period politically and the audience has been switching on to Question Time in their millions.

“It’s the only place on television where politicians are accountable to the public. It’s good that people want more politics not less.”

BBC Three Controller Danny Cohen said: “Broadcasting this youthful edition of Question Time is part of BBC Three’s ever-growing commitment to serious factual programmes.”

Audience figures for Question Time have exceeded three million regularly over the past six weeks.
