BBC Sunday Politics talks to Viridor

07th November 2015

BBC One’s flagship politics programme, The Sunday Politics, talked to Viridor this week about recycling, resources and global commodity markets.

The programme, hosted by anchor Andrew Neil, featured a package at Viridor’s £205m Ardley Energy Recovery Facility. Opened by HRH The Duke of Gloucester KG, GCVO earlier this year, the package featured BBC South’s Politics Reporter, Helen Catt touring the facility and interviewing Head of Media Relations & Public Affairs, Martin Grey.

In addition to broadcasting from the tipping hall and control room, the package featured an interview in the firm’s award winning education and visitors centre.

Commenting, Martin Grey, Head of Media Relations and Public Affairs, said:

“It was great to welcome Helen and the BBC Sunday Politics South team to Ardley ERF. The challenges and economic, community and environmental opportunities of building a national resources network affect us all and it was great to help talk about why facilities like Ardley matter.

“Viridor’s is committed to increasing our share of broadcast and media coverage, focusing on our innovative resource partnerships. This was a great opportunity to do so, working with our fantastic team at Ardley.”

The programme also featured follow-on studio interviews with Layla Moran, Liberal Democrats, Oxford City Council and Cllr Louise Goldsmith, Conservative Leader, West Sussex County Council.

The programme can be viewed on BBC iPlayer for a limited time at
