Any Questions? at Giggleswick School

Last evening we went to join the audience for the live broadcast of BBC Radio 4's Any Questions? from the Richard Whiteley Theatre at Giggleswick school

We had been to one of these before - at Beckfoot School in Bingley, by comparison with which the Giggleswick audience get 100% for politeness and good conduct.    That is not to say it was partisan. The applause was well distributed between the token Tory, Labour and Lib-dem.

Even more telling of course is when a speaker finishes and there is not a ripple.

Footnote:   Bumped into one of the panelists next morning admiring the water tower before catching a train to Leeds where there was a football match to be watched, apparently.    Had never been to the Yorkshire Dales before but vowed to return.   Had no plans to listen to the Saturday lunchtime repeat!
