Home - News - Question Time Election Leaders Special – Live on BBC One, Sky News

With a week to go until the 2015 General Election, the BBC will air a special edition of Question Time this evening.

It will feature the leader of the Conservatives David Cameron, the Liberal Democrats’ Nick Clegg and Labour’s Ed Miliband, who will come on in turn and face questions from the audience for 30 minutes.

The order the leaders will appear in is: David Cameron, Ed Miliband and Nick Clegg. This was agreed between the BBC and political parties.

Like every Question Time programme, questions will reflect the subjects people are most interested in and the audience will submit questions in advance and on the night.

The programme, hosted by David Dimbleby, will be broadcast from Leeds Town Hall and is being shown live on BBC One, Sky News and can be heard on BBC Radio 5 live from 8pm to 9.30pm.

Later the same evening, there will be three special programmes broadcast on BBC One in different parts of the UK, in which Nicola Sturgeon, Leanne Wood and Nigel Farage will each answer voters’ questions for half an hour.

On BBC One in Scotland at 9.30pm, Glenn Campbell will chair Election 2015: Ask Nicola Sturgeon, in which the SNP leader will take questions from an audience in Glasgow.

On BBC One in Wales, after the News at Ten, an audience in Cardiff will put questions to the Plaid Cymru leader in Election 2015: Ask Leanne Wood.

After the News at Ten, viewers in England will be able to see Election 2015: Ask Nigel Farage on BBC One, chaired by Jo Coburn, in which the UKIP leader will take questions from an audience in Birmingham. The programme will also be shown later in the evening on BBC One in Wales.
