Financial experts such as Paul Lewis from Radio 4’s Money Box, and Naga Munchetty and Declan Curry from Working Lunch offer advice on tax, pensions and mortgages at the BBC’s first ever money roadshow yesterday.
The event, which was held at the Trafford Centre in Manchester, was organised to inform the public of ways they can better take control of their finances in light of the current economic downturn.
Jeremy Hillman, editor of the Economics and Business Centre in BBC News said: “The public are asking hard questions about their finances and the decisions they need to make in what are very difficult economic conditions.
“Our first money roadshow is a great way of meeting large numbers of our viewers and listeners and reacting to their concerns and questions at a time of great uncertainty.”
The BBC said that it could be the ‘first in a series of similar events across the UK.’
