The Big Question seeks answers
The Big Question graphic
The series will ask a different question each month

The Big Question is a new series on the BBC in the North East and Cumbria, examining big issues that affect life in our region - and we need your help.

The series runs until March 2010 and will ask a new question each month. First in the spotlight is employment.

There are more than 124,000 people out of work in the region and many people are asking: "Why can't I get a job?"

We'll be trying to answer that question from 19 October and we'd like you to join the debate. E-mail: tyne@bbc.co.uk

There will be a whole week of coverage on Look North, BBC Newcastle and online on BBC Tyne.
