BBC’s World Have Your Say



This week at noon the BBC program World Have Your Say has been broadcasting live from Austin via KUT 90.5 FM.

“World Have Your Say is a BBC News discussion program where people around the world set the agenda. They use all technology possible to make the program open and indicative of as many contributors as they can. Join Ros Atkins and the rest of the WHYS crew and get involved: we’ll be helping you contribute to the discussions all week. Visit the WHYS Blog to suggest a debate,” according to the KUT website.

The technology used includes: phone calls, calls over the net, text messages, emails and comments on their blog. Their goal is to create a “global conversation where the BBC provides the platform, but our contributors control the topics we discuss and how they are discussed.”

This week they have broadcasted from Killeen, Georgetown, the UT campus and the ACL studios.

This is an awesome program, and I think it is really neat that our school and city were able to be a part of it!

    That is so cool. I wish I’d known sooner. Are they going to be here tomorrow? I’m guessing not. Anyway, general site feedback: where are your names?? There’s no way of telling who posted what unless you manually find the corresponding post by searching through everyone’s name links. How about some tagging, or sign off with your name in text at the end!
