Question Time is a topical debate television programme in the United Kingdom, based on Any Questions?. The show typically features politicians from at least the three major political parties as well as other public figures who answer questions put to them by the audience. The Audience being mainly made up from the Public.
It is usually recorded about 2 hours prior to transmission, but has been broadcast live as recently as May 2009 when the broadcast came from Salisbury at the earlier time of 9pm BST.
The current series began on 24 September 2009 and is currently being shown on BBC One at 22:35 on Thursdays (and slightly later in Wales).
The UK's equalities watchdog has begun legal action against the British National Party over concerns about ethnic restrictions on its membership.
The Equality and Human Rights Commission said limiting membership to those of an "ethnic origin" described as "indigenous Caucasian" was illegal.
Deputy director general Mark Byford has said it is not the BBC's role to censor the BNP as criticism mounts ahead of the party's Question Time appearance.
He said the BNP's Euro vote meant the BBC had to allow it on as part of its "responsibility of due impartiality".
The BBC has rejected Welsh Secretary Peter Hain's warning that it could face legal action over BNP leader Nick Griffin's appearance on Question Time.
The show is due to feature Mr Griffin and other panellists on 22 October.
Anyway,if you are against this while calling the BNP fascists etc you should look up the word hypocrite.

NG has every right to appear on Question Time. Is the BNP the ogre it has been made out to be?
