First ever Real Talk Live interactive debate show in Coventry hailed a success!

On the 20th November Real Talk hosted its first ever live interactive debate show at City College Coventry, hosted by award-winning presenter and journalist, Trish Adudu and with panel members such as the controversial broadcaster and journalist Jon Gaunt, John Dawkins – Artist Management and Dr Lynette Kelly – Parliamentary Candidate discussing topics such as;

'Should the national curriculum teach students life skills? Followed by 'Are we doing enough to get young people engaged in politics?' In this day and age should we be able to cast our votes online? This debate was full of heated opinions and challenging statements.

The second part of the debate was equally just as intense, introducing new panel members, Matthew Cottrell a Professor at City College Coventry and Sandra Godley a Gospel Singer.

With the topic heading; Is the new charity single for Band Aid to help the fight against Ebola, patronising? This is something that has been causing quite a stir in mainstream media and in the music industry. With the likes of afro beat artist Fuse ODG refusing to take part in the collaboration had eyebrows raised and ears perked as many other artistes expressed their concerns as to the legitimacy of the campaign.

These debates were full of all the right ingredients, a great host, great panel, great audience and most of all hot topics, discussing subjects like politics, media and the educational system had various audience members vocalising their heartfelt views and opinions, some in agreement others voicing their objections, all the things you would expect from a good debate.

The debate took place at City College Coventry which was launched in February 2002, by the then Secretary of State for Education and Skills, Estelle Morris. Although essentially new, the College has a long tradition in teaching and learning having been formed by the merger of Coventry Technical College and Tile Hill College. It is a further education college with some 7000 students currently enrolled. The debate itself was held in the college studio and had approximately 50 students in attendance.

Stay tuned to your TV sets and online for the next date and location for our live debate, it's sure to be as riveting as the last.
