If you want a chance to be on TV, to debate ‘matters of equality as well as issues relating to independence, devolution and localised government‘, read on. NTBCC assumes that it has been asked to help with publicity, because community councils have to be non-political (at least non-party-political).
Here is the original request:
Hello there, my name is Alistair I am a researcher on the BBC’s flagship moral, ethical and religious debate show The Big Questions. I’m hoping you might be able to reach out to your local community councillors and communities for me.
We are inviting applications from Edinburgh and Lothian to join the virtual audience for a show recording on Saturday 6th February. At the moment we expect to be debating matters of equality as well as issues relating to independence, devolution and localised government across the UK.
It is very important to us that we provide the opportunity for local people to have their opinions heard during our debates, and we strive to ensure a diverse range of beliefs, backgrounds and opinions are represented on the show.
I’d be very grateful if you could help circulate this information, in order to ensure the widest communication and consequently a broad range of local voices to bring to our important discussion.
I have attached a flyer with further information – please also feel free to share this on any social media channels or on your website.
Anyone interested in taking part should email firstname.lastname@example.org for application instructions.
If you’ve any questions at all please don’t hesitate to get in touch, via this email or by phone – 0141 611 9634.
Thanks in advance for your help
All the best
