BBC Radio 1 sounded for 5 minutes of silence

Five minutes of silence was heard on BBC Radio 1 on Friday afternoon. Not because of a technical problem, but because Greg James failed his mission to find 30 DJs for ‘Radio 1’s Giant DJ Hunt’. In this big radio game, all Radio 1 DJs have lost their jobs and are ‘hiding’ somewhere in the UK or even abroad. Greg James was the last person left and had to track down everyone in 100 hours, with the help of listeners and social media. Thanks to tips, he managed to track Danny Howard and Pete Tong to Ibiza Rocks, Vic Hope was spotted at an Ann Summers store, and Ricky Haywood-Williams and Melvin Odom were arrested in Amsterdam during a Coldplay performance. However, the search turned out to be more difficult than expected, raising the stakes on Thursday. If Greg could not complete a Friday afternoon challenge, the station would have to go off the air for 5 minutes. That’s how it happened. Greg was the last to find Molly King, who was on a boat off the Isle of Wight. Thus the transmitter was silent for five minutes. Even the tech emergency backup tape was pre-deactivated.
