Bradford Question Time – #BDQT

Screen Shot 2012-12-26 at 17.28.42Bradford Question Time will give you the chance to question Bradford’s political, cultural, economic and social leaders via Twitter, see how they respond, and comment on their answers.

How does #BDQT work?
Each month, four guests will be invited to take one of the #BDQT Twitter accounts. They will answer and discuss your questions, which will be put them them by the moderator.

Screen Shot 2012-12-26 at 17.30.03At points, @BDQTMod may retweet some of the comments made by the audience following, asking for comments from the guests.

At least a portion of each #BDQT will be open, and questions asked can be about anything. However, some #BDQTs will be themed, with a good proportion of the time and questions being centred around one idea, story or aspect of Bradford life.

When is #BDQT?
Screen Shot 2012-12-26 at 17.30.58#BDQT is monthly, usually taking place at the very end or start of the month. It’s scheduled to coincide with #BradfordHour (Thursdays 8-9pm) to allow Bradford’s businesses and cultural outlets who use #BradfordHour the greatest exposure to Bradfordians online.

The very first #BDQT will be on Thursday 31st January 8-9pm.

Do make sure you join us.

Who will the guests be?
The guests will change from month to month, but will be drawn from the vast pools of eminent Bradfordians and those who drive and comment upon Bradford. Guests representing politics, business, the arts, society and more will be invited to take part.

To find out who the guests are and what the theme of the month is, follow @BDQTMod and keep an eye out during #BradfordHour (Thursdays 8-9pm) for updates and announcements.

How do I ask a question?
If you’ve got a question, tweet it to @BDQTMod using #BDQT.

Questions can be about anything you think deserves an answer. If it’s about Bradford & District, it’s for #BDQT.

You may choose to see what the theme is, or see who’s going to on, and if you’re question’s not chosen for the subsequent #BDQT, it may be used in future. Remember, a question doesn’t have to be on the theme of the event – it can be about anything Bradford.

What if I don’t have a Twitter account?
Screen Shot 2012-12-26 at 17.31.42The Titterfeed #BDQT will be picked up and published by the excellent Hidden Bradford website, and you can read the tweets, and even comment on them, there.

What do I need to do now?
Following the #BDQT Twitterfeeds would be a good start.

Most new information will come via @BDQTMod, so make sure you’re following that account. Any news released via the other feeds will be retweeted by @BDQTMod.

Screen Shot 2012-12-26 at 17.32.32Also follow the other the #BDQT accounts. These are the accounts from which our guests will tweet. They are @BDQTGuest1, @BDQTGuest2, @BDQTGuest3 and @BDQTGuest4.

Think up a question you’d like to put to our panel and tweet it to @BDQTMod, using #BDQT. If you’ve got a suggestion for someone to be on the panel, let us know.

Check for updates and announcements from @BDQTMod, usually during #BradfordHour (Thursdays 8-9pm).

Finally, and most importantly, make sure you join in with Bradford Question Time – without you, #BDQT’s nothing.


About jatkinson1977

I'm in my 30s and married to Sharon, the beautiful woman who keeps me in check. We live in Shipley, just outside Bradford, with our black lab, Nipper. I'm an English teacher in secondary school and, after working as a Teaching & Learning Consultant with the local authority, have returned to the classroom to become a Lead Professional in English at a large comp in Bradford. I'm also trying to become a little more cultured, especially by seeing what culture's right here on my doorstep in Bradford and West Yorkshire (please see my blog, 'Am I Kulchad Yet?'). I've got a third and final blog which is filled with things that, essentially, don't fit into the other two but are interesting enough to share (please see my blog, 'Things That Occur To Me').
