Left v Right
…bringing back the art of debate

Left v Right is a short weekly debate on selected current affairs stories. Lasting just 4 minutes, the discourse features two individuals mooting contrasting views about a topical news story making headlines that week globally, from within the UK, and in the Sikh/Punjabi world. The show aims to get people engaged with different views of everyday events, fostering a greater sense of tolerance and understanding for opinions that aren’t our own.
