BBC Radio 4's Any Questions hasn't always possessed the spark & spice of its TV counterpart Question Time, although it has had its moments over the decades. This Friday's edition will be worth catching (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01kt7m6 ), seeing as the panel will include writer & blogger Owen Jones. Also on the panel will be the man who is to journalism what G4S is to efficient organisation (http://www.guardian.co.uk/uk/2012/jul/17/g4s-nick-buckles-shambles ), Kelvin MacKenzie.
Moreover, Owen will be donating his fee from the programme to the Hillsborough Justice Campaign (http://www.contrast.org/hillsborough/ ).
MacKenzie, by crushing contrast, will pocket his fee from the BBC & then feel free to denigrate the corporation itself & call for the licence fee to be either lowered or scrapped altogether.
The programme will be repeated on Saturday afternoon at 1.10pm & will then be followed at 2.00pm by Any Answers (http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b006qmmy ); phone: 03700 100 444; email: firstname.lastname@example.org; tweet @BBCRadio4, using hashtag #bbcaq.
The programme's format will probably prevent Owen from exposing MacKenzie for the liar & bigot he is. However, one can but hope.
