Join Hamish and guests every Sunday from 10-12 for the islands political debate.

Christie Tucker

Sunday Morning and Talkback; it has become a part of the fabric of my weekend and also – it seems – very much the same for many people in Jersey. It is a time when my two guests answer the points raised by the contributors and sometimes take issue with them.


10:00 - 12:00

It may seem strange for a radio presenter, but my role is to try and keep quiet. My problem is to keep the balance between a studio based discussion and getting as many listeners to join as possible.

There are many occasions when there is simply not time to include all the e-mails and comments, phoned through the producer, for me to put on air. If not used, they are always passed on to Roger Bara for inclusion in the weekday phone-in but, as I always say, Talkback relies on phoned-in contributions and like any good phone-in, callers come first.

States Members take a holiday during the summer but the programme continues, looking at certain themes – tourism for example, or people’s  health  – in more detail.

It could be a “Gardeners Question Time“ from the RJA & HS in Trinity or, on one occasion, a live broadcast from a coastal walk near La Rocque. (see pic)

Sometimes I  broadcast a recorded meeting which I think is important enough to take over the programme. I believe this has a place in the format for it allows other members of the public – who might ask a question at a public meeting, but who are wary of ringing up a radio programme – to have their views picked up and promulgated.

With  a few gaps I have been presenting this programme since the mid – Eighties so, in a way, it has become part of my life. I am conscious that I invade many homes on a Sunday morning and I feel I know everyone there. I might not know their faces but I will recognise them when they speak.

If you want to send an e-mail to the presenter currently on air - use this form.
