Campbeltown Picture House will be hosting a live broadcast of Radio 4’s political flagship show Any Questions? this month.

First broadcast on Friday October 12 1948, Any Questions? is broadcast live on Radio 4 most Friday evenings of the year following the 8pm news.

The programme is repeated on Saturday lunchtimes at 1.10pm, and is followed at 2pm by the Any Answers? phone-in which gives listeners a chance to join in the debate.

The programme travels throughout the United Kingdom at the invitation of local organisations. Currently, about 1.5 million people listen to the programme.

The audience submits questions on the day of the broadcast and these are then sifted by the producer who selects 10 questions across a range of subjects.

Normally, four to six of them are included in the actual broadcast.

One of the stringent and unchanging rules of Any Questions? is that the panel never sees the questions in advance; the panellists hear them for the first time at the same moment the audience in the hall and at home does.

Tickets for the Campbeltown Picture House broadcast on Friday July 23 are available on a first-come, first-served basis and can be reserved by emailing the cinema on including your name and the number of tickets you would like.
