The Palestinian Debates are two factual debate programmes, one of which is broadcast on the national TV and radio station and the other on national TV and BBC Arabic. They provide Palestinians with the opportunity to question decision-makers face-to-face. BBC Media Action’s research showed that the audience felt positive about the programmes and believed that they play an important role in holding decision-makers to account.
