Your voice at the heart of the BBC
10 May 2010
Do you have views about BBC radio? What do you value and enjoy?
And what would you change?
The BBC Audience Council wants to understand what audiences think about local radio - BBC Radio Ulster / Foyle, and the BBC’s UK wide stations - BBC Radio 3, Radio 4 and Radio 7.
The Audience Council is going to Craigavon and Londonderry and invites audiences in the Craigavon and Foyle areas to join them in informal discussions about these BBC Radio Services.
- Craigavon Civic & Conference Centre on 26 May, 6pm to 8pm.
- Millennium Forum Theatre & Conference Centre, Londonderry, on 8 June, 6pm to 8pm.
Audiences’ views will inform major reviews of these services by the BBC Trust, the governing body of the BBC.
Rotha Johnston, Chair of the Audience Council, explains:
“The BBC Audience Council represents the interests of BBC audiences in Northern Ireland. It advises the BBC Trust which has considerable power to wield on behalf of licence fee payers.
We want to understand the wide range of views about BBC radio – what audiences value and enjoy and where they would like to see improvements.
“This is a wonderful opportunity to have your say about the services which are important to you, and to know that your views will be heard at the very heart of decision-making in the BBC.”
This is one of a series of discussion events in different parts of Northern Ireland which will feed into the Trust’s reviews. It is open to anyone with an interest in BBC radio, whether they are occasional or regular listeners.
There will also be an opportunity to share any views you might have about other BBC programmes and services. We hope you can join us for a light supper and what promises to be a lively and informative discussion.
