BBC to address issues of power and control from New Delhi

BBC will be exploring the issue of power and control through a debate on India’s increasing role as one of the world’s key economic players and the long-term effect of this shift on its social structure. The debate will be one of the highlights of a major new radio and online season on BBC World Service radio entitled ‘Who Runs Your World?’.

The debate from Delhi will be recorded on September 23 and broadcast at 5.00 pm on September 25 on BBC World Service radio. It will explore the relationship between business and the state, and seeks to answer whether corporations are becoming more powerful than governments.

‘Who Runs Your World?’ is BBC’s largest ever single-themed season of programmes. Running from September 16 to October 2, it will feature on all the BBC global news service – TV, radio and online – in English and 42 other languages, including Bengali, Hindi, Tamil and Urdu.

Elaborating on the topic to be debated upon, Abbas Nasir, Head of Asia and Pacific Region, BBC World Service, said, “It is widely predicted that India will have a major impact on the global economy. It is already in the process of transforming itself into an economic superpower. But who is leveraging this ascent? How is India’s massive population going to share in this change, and just what effect will India have on the world’s economic power balance?”

BBC presenter Anu Anand will chair the debate in front of an invited audience. Executive Director, Nicholas Piramal India, Dr Swati Piramal; social entrepreneur, Abraham George; and Secretary General of Ficci, Amit Mitra will be among the panelists.

The event in the National Capital will be broadcast only on the English stream of the BBC World Service radio, and this is being used as an opportunity to undertake a series of in-depth one-to-one interviews with leading business people, including Rahul Bajaj of Bajaj Autos and Dr Vijay Mallya of the UB Group. The interviews will also be broadcast on September 25.
