BBC’s Question Time will be heading to Camlough on thursday, but BBC officials have raised concerns over the proposed venue.
Normally accustomed to city halls or civic centres, Fiona Bruce will instead be beaming the latest installment of the show live from local Farmer Quinn’s disused barn on the outskirts of the village.
Fiona Bruce who will be staying in the nearby Black Gap Farm said:
“Question Time has to visit every location, so we can’t discriminate, but I’m unsure about this one. The desk is just an upside down cow trough, and some of the audience will be farmyard animals”.
The show works through a list of pre-selected questions, covering largely topical issues. Bruce explained:
“Quite early on in the show an actual calf is going to ask what our thoughts on the Brexit and how we think leaving could benefit Irish agriculture.”
