The BNP on Question Time.

Eddie Mair | 12:39 UK time, Friday, 23 October 2009

daviddimbleby.JPGQuestion Time attracted 7.8 million viewers at its peak last night. So many people took an interest in what was happening. But last night I was with two people with a special interest in it.

Alan and Tom are neighbours in Shrewsbury. Alan is a big BNP supporter and Tom is fervently opposed. A few months back, in the wake of our iPM opinion poll on neighbourliness, we brought them together for their first real conversation in 18 years. They had a sharp and frank discussion in our Shrewsbury studio about their politics. You can hear it in full and read listeners' reactions here.

We wondered how Alan and Tom felt about Nick Griffin being on the programme, so last night I paid them a visit at their homes, before during and after Question Time. You can hear the item on tomorrow's iPM. You can podcast iPM in a few clicks by following this link.
