There was controversy over the Zola Budd/Mary Decker clash in the 3000 metres and, as we had no studio, a two way with London was set up with Brendan Foster in the VT area. The BBC commentary position in the main stadium. It was very hot indeed and, in fact, the monitor casings melted! There was a VT truck in the car park outside the stadium next door to a row of portaloos(!) which, to put it mildly, were not nice places to visit!
