Business Day Thursday, 7 November, 2002, 09:20 GMT
BBC Business Day:The line-up
This Thursday is Business Day for the BBC in Northern Ireland.

It is a full-scale multi-media event covered by BBC Northern Ireland television, radio and on-line with each platform featuring reports and programmes on business past, present and future.

On Thursday evening, BBC One features a special discussion programme, It's Your Business, chaired by Northern Ireland born broadcaster Declan Curry, who presents the business news on BBC One's Breakfast and on BBC News 24.

He is joined by a familiar face to BBC Northern Ireland viewers - news presenter Sarah Travers.

The debate among young entrepreneurs, foreign investors and local business leaders is being broadcast live from the Halifax business centre in Belfast.

The programme, at 2235 GMT, will examine in detail an opinion survey carried out among 500 business leaders from companies across Northern Ireland.

They were polled by the consultants PriceWaterhouseCoopers on their expectations for business in the future, and the effect of the current political impasse on the economic prospects.

Euro question

This is the first time a poll of this scale and type has been undertaken in Northern Ireland.

Among the questions put to the business leaders is whether the UK should enter the euro currency zone.

See what they think but more importantly, viewers can have their say.

You can vote by phone, text or e-mail - call 08000 322262 to register a vote by phone.

Alternatively call 07764 355 202 to text your vote, or e-mail it to businessdayni@bbc.co.uk

Phone and text lines open at 1700 GMT on Thursday and the results will be announced live on It's Your Business that night.

On top of all that, two of the BBC's main network business programmes will be broadcasting from Northern Ireland.

BBC One Breakfast's business news will come live from Belfast, also presented by Declan Curry, followed by BBC Two's Working Lunch programme.

Other programmes on BBC1 Northern Ireland, Radio Ulster and Radio Foyle will also be taking part in Business Day.

These are just a few of the highlights: BBC Newsline will carry special reports on the outcome of the Business Day survey, while Gerry Anderson revisited a favourite from the past, when his show brought 'Workers Playtime' to a local factory.

BBC Northern Ireland's business editor, James Kerr, hosted a webcast live at 1300 GMT on the state of the province's IT and communications industry at www.bbc.co.uk/ni.
