Laura Foster, the BBC’s health, science and environment correspondent, posted a video on Twitter after a day of training. In the pictures, the BBC reporter walks into a room called the “microwave center” and it is filled with at least 16 microwaves.
She tweeted: “I’m doing some training today and have discovered a hidden BBC room entirely dedicated to microwaves.”

This latest discovery came after the BBC faced continued criticism after eliminating free television licenses for the majority of those over 75.
The corporation also faced accusations of negatively representing people of working-class backgrounds and being the subject of ridicule.
In January, BBC Director General Tim Davie said that BBC reporters must be “activists for fairness”.
He said, “Do you need the sizzle of bias to make your way in this space?
“I think it is very important to say that fairness is not boring.
“It is not the dry part of the reports, it is absolutely a real appetite for evidence, for truth, for testimony.
“It can be a really good and tasty story and I think we shouldn’t give up … we’ve had incredible investigative reporting, very compelling reporting for some of these situations around the world and we want to keep making it interesting.
“And I really think it’s very important that those of us who fight for impartial means, to tell the truth, don’t give way to: ‘We have to do this in a way that gets the most clicks immediately,’ but also not give up on the theater of it, the emotion of it, all the things we want to bring “.
The BBC has been asked to remove the compulsory license fee, but the Government confirmed that failure to pay the fee will not be decriminalized.
Those who watch BBC TV and iPlayer live must pay the annual fee of £ 157.50 or risk being fined up to £ 1,000 in addition to court costs.
The license fee is the annual cost to be paid by viewers in the UK and finances the BBC’s television, radio and online services only.
During the 2019 general election, senior Conservative MPs attacked the BBC accusing the corporation of bias.
The Conservative Party won several Labor seats in the north of England on promises of Brexit and BBC reform.
