Hospital Radio Hillingdon has made the bold leap from broadcasting to patients inside Hillingdon Hospital and listeners online to appearing on the TV screens of audiences nationwide this week.
The station, its studios and four volunteers were all filmed as part of an episode of the BBC institution, Points Of View shown on Sunday 26th May 2019.
This edition of the weekly programme saw Hospital Radio Hillingdon presenters George Reed, Mhairi Irvine, Phil Lee and Dr Savi Aurora all tasked with watching and reviewing the brand new Saturday night BBC One game show, The Hit List. Hosted by music power couple Rochelle and Marvin Humes, contestants of The Hit List are tasked with guessing the name of a song and the artist behind it just by listening to a short sample.
Due to the nature of this Game Show, BBCs Points Of View wanted the thoughts and reviews of four diverse radio presenters. And being keen music fans and aficionados themselves, these volunteers certainly had opinions!
Mhairi Irvine, a presenter at Hospital Radio Hillingdon for 13 years, took part in the shoot and found the whole experience "So much fun!". As well as filming their reviews to camera, all four were captured carrying out tasks around the station, studios and library.
