Elizabeth Edwards to be on BBC next week

I just read in the Guardian that BBC's "Question Time" is travelling to DC on October 30th. "Question Time" (not to be confused with the British Parliament members' interaction with the Prime Minister also known as Question Time) is a weekly panel discussion about current affairs in Britain. However, there has been much interest around the globe about the US election. (BW readers may recall that I was one of the panelists for the BBC Radio's "World Have Your Say" the day of the NH primary--and there was plenty of interest then.)

From the Guardian:

The BBC1 show's panel will include Elizabeth Edwards, the wife of former Democratic presidential candidate John Edwards, in what will be her first British television appearance since her husband withdrew from the race for the 2008 nomination.

Edwards, who is also an adviser to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama on health issues, was diagnosed with breast cancer in the spring of 2007.

Alongside Edwards on the panel will be historian Simon Schama and Clarence Page, the Pulitzer Prize-winning Chicago Tribune journalist.

Gill Penlington, the Question Time editor, said: "This is one of the most exciting and significant American elections ever seen, and Question Time will be bringing you top quality debate, insight and analysis ahead of the big day."

It's supposed to air at 10:35p GMT on BBC1. Hopefully, they will stream it on the Net.

Good for Elizabeth. I hope it also means that her mother is out of danger health-wise. Elizabeth had to cancel most of her October personal appearances because of her mother's illness.
