Fracking: The Big Questions

Fracking: The Big Questions

Fracking: The Big Questions is a series of reports and debate on the controversial issue of the shale gas industry.


Mat Trewern will be looking at why we may need fracking, what the drilling technique involves, the potential economic benefits, the environmental and health concerns and what the future of fracking may be for the North West.


On Friday, 28 February you’ll be able to hear “Fracking: The Big Debate” with a panel of guests including drilling companies and those fiercely opposed to the industry.


Join in the debate on Facebook and Twitter #BBCFracking.
