BBC Wants Zaun Election Comment

Last updated: Wednesday, June 14, 2017 - Save & Share

The BBC has descended on Zaun for comment in the past few days as the country still seeks to come to terms with the results of the General Election.

The final few constituencies were still yet to declare when Radio 4 Today programme chief correspondent Matthew Price arrived before 7am on Friday to interview owner and founder Alastair Henman, fork life truck operator Matt Ellis and stores apprentice Jordan Hughes.

That broadcast went out at 9.35am as the programme sought to make sense of a hung Parliament and how long Theresa May might last at the helm of a minority Government.

And on Monday BBC Midlands Today arrived to capture footage of fencing systems in manufacture and conduct TV interviews.

Black Country correspondent Ben Godfrey put the questions to both Alastair and Jordan.

A short two-minute teaser went out at lunchtime yesterday with the main bulletin leading the half-hour slot at 6.30pm that evening.
