JCB hosted the most recent edition of BBC One’s flagship political show Question Time.

Host David Dimbleby and a panel of politicians and pundits answered questions at the manufacturer’s Innovation Centre at JCB’s World HQ at Rocester. Some of the audience members work in the factory.

JCB CEO Graeme Macdonald said, “It was a pleasure to host David Dimbleby and BBC One’s Question Time at JCB. The JCB’s Innovation Centre is where the ideas for our products are brought to life and the industrial setting provided an ideal backdrop for the programme.”

JCB application engineer Mark Richards (25) was in the audience. He added, “It was a once in a lifetime experience to be involved and it was great to be so close to the programme and see how it is actually made. It was also a very interesting experience to be involved in a live debate, hear different views and get some answers from politicians.”

Global major accounts executive Olivia Grey (25) said, “It was a very enjoyable evening and I was really pleased I applied to be in the audience and was able to watch the debate in person.”
