BFBS takeover Radio 1 on Christmas Day

December 18, 2020

BBC Radio 1 are handing over the airwaves to BFBS for four hours on Christmas Day, giving troops based overseas the opportunity to send Christmas messages to their families and friends back home in the UK.

BFBS has a long-established tradition of connecting those serving overseas with their loved ones at home and, with many members of the forces unable to return to the UK to spend time with their families this Christmas, is very excited to be able to bring its festive broadcast to a much wider audience on BBC Radio 1.

BBC Radio 1 will broadcast four one-hour shows from military bases in Cyprus, Germany, Brunei, Gibraltar and Bahrain, hosted by BFBS presenters and featuring messages from members of the forces and some surprise guests, plus plenty of Christmas music to soundtrack the celebrations of families around the world.

Tune in to BFBS on BBC Radio between 10am and 2pm on Christmas Day.
