Question Time is a topical debate BBC television programme in the United Kingdom, based on Any Questions?. The show typically features politicians from at least the three major political parties as well as other public figures who answer pre-selected questions put to them by a carefully selected audience. The independent production company Mentorn has made the programme for the BBC since 1998. Question Time is presented by David Dimbleby. It is usually recorded about two hours prior to transmission, but has been broadcast live. Until 2010 BBC One Northern Ireland replaced Question Time with the more local debate show Let's Talk at least once a month hosted by Mark Carruthers but this show has been axed and brought under the Spotlight brand and is now shown once a month on Tuesday night with Noel Thompson. Nowadays BBC One NI have their own political show called the view broadcast live from 10.35pm to 11.05pm with Mark Carruthers and Question Time follows it. Question Time is only broadcast at the usual time in Northern Ireland if the programme is coming from Northern Ireland, as in September 2012 when it was broadcast from Derry and in May 2013 when the programme was from Belfast.
