It’s that time of year when temperatures plummet and our office air conditioners go from cool to heat, but not in the BBC Radio 1 studio which houses some of the country’s best known presenters and DJs.
The likes of Chris Moyles, Fearne Cotton, Jo Whiley and Vernon Kay spend hours of their working days down in the basement studio which can get pretty warm, to say the least, and so it’s no surprise that an air conditioning unit sits proudly on the wall.
However, much to Sara Cox’s dismay, the thing isn’t working! Standing in for Moyles on the famous breakfast show this morning, Cox bemoaned her body temperature after consuming one too many hot drinks.
“You know when you’ve had too much hot stuff and it leaves you with hot blood? I think that’s what’s happened here! I’ve had three mugs of tea and some steaming hot porridge and now I’m sweating cobs. And the air conditioning is broken!”
The BBC Radio 1 studios are located in the basement of Yalding House (near to BBC Broadcasting House) which is on Great Portland Street in central London.
Should they require a bit of air conditioning maintenance, we’d be only too happy to help!
