With so many different pieces of equipment to keep an eye on during a radio broadcast, it’s natural that occasionally mistakes will be made.
Which brings us swiftly to BBC Radio 4.
Listeners tuning into to today’s You and Yours heard an inadvertent expletive uttered live on radio from someone testing the sound.
The man can be heard in the background saying: "Testing...testing, testing, testing."
It’s so f**king cold in here! Jesus Christ. It's so cold. It's so cold in here.
It’s so f**king cold in here! Jesus Christ.
It's so cold. It's so cold in here.
Ironically, the weather forecast was coming up next.
Though there were a few gentle admonishments...
“BBC Radio 4, the news at 1 o’clock. It’s fucking cold in here”. https://t.co/9XAE3Tdr9v — Jon Holmes (@Jon Holmes)

I think @BBCRadio4 #YouAndYours is having technical difficulties, both with the mixer board AND the thermostat in the other studio. — Tim McCann #FSFA (@Tim McCann #FSFA)
Oops @BBCRadio4 ... someone said a naughty word while #Youandyours was on! Better put some heating on in the studio if it’s that cold... — Susannah 👂💙 (@Susannah 👂💙)
