Tonight: the UK’s first ever election debate

In 1960, Richard Nixon and John F. Kennedy squared off in the first-ever televised debate in the United States. The debate made history and many say was a determining factor in the election's outcome.

Tonight, history will be made in the UK as Labour leader and British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, Conservative leader David Cameron and the Liberal Democrats' Nick Clegg participate in the first-ever, live television debate to decide the UK's next P.M.. The debate will air at 8:30 p.m. UK time tonight on ITV and on BBC 4 Radio. Afterward, anyone in the world can tune into YouTube to watch the debate in its entirety, as well as clips of the top moments, on ITV's YouTube channel.

You also have the opportunity to pose your own questions to the candidates in the YouTube/Facebook Digital Debate.

Already, over 1500 questions have been asked and 60,000 votes have been cast through Google Moderator on YouTube and Facebook. Add your voice to the debate today:
