Just watching the Big Question. A women is trying to make her point but the opposing men are interrupting and talking over her. The host is doing nothing. But when the opposing man is making his point, the woman is say quietly listening.

She's trying to make her point - but is not being allowed to. Interesting watching behaviour.

I didnt see it but you often see the same thing where quiet/non dominant men get talked over. I think it may be more a case of loud mouths being aloud to win the day by crap host. I have seen many women do this too.
I would like to see him talking over the likes of Janet Street Porter.

Oh yes I saw that and thought the same thing. I didn't agree with what she was saying but I did remember thinking "let her make her point, FGS!" Also the guy opposite was putting words in her mouth that she didn't actually say.
