Greg James will broadcast live from BFBS

26 Nov


BBC Radio 1’s Greg James will flee the country next month and take the show up to Camp Bastion, Helmand Province.

Here he will be reflecting the daily lives of soldiers at Camp Bastion and hopefully  brightening up their week.

This what drive-time DJ Greg James had to say on the announcement:

“I’m really excited to be bringing Radio 1 out to the troops and show them how much we appreciate their hard work. I love a challenge and an adventure and this will be a brilliant opportunity to see how BFBS and Camp Bastion works. Trust my luck that Daniel Craig went out there last week – it’s not the easiest gig to follow James Bond, is it?”

Rhys Hughes, Head of Programmes for BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra also said:

“Our ambition is that BBC Radio 1 with Greg James will reflect what it feels like for our armed forces personnel to live and work in Camp Bastion. We are delighted to be returning to Camp Bastion for a third year, working very closely with our friends at BFBS to connect Service personnel with their families back in the UK and around the world.”

Join Greg live from Afghanistan  on Monday 10th December to Friday 14th December, 4-7pm on BBC Radio 1.
