The Politics Show Energy debate
I took part in a recording this evening of a local debate for the BBC Politics show about different sources of energy.
Issues covered include nuclear power, nuclear waste, onshore and offshore wind, and coal power.
Other participants included Jamie Reed MP, Chris Davies MEP, Elaine Woodburn, Martin Forwood of CORE, and various experts and representatives of campaigning groups.
The full debate lasting one hour will be available on the BBC politics show website. About 20 minutes will be used on the politics show this Sunday from 11 am in the North East and Cumbria area, and about half an hour will be broadcast on the local radio on Monday afternoon.
