Dear British Broadcasting Corporation,

I refer to this article in The Sun newspaper which tells me "BBC staff are being offered a one-hour online training session on how to drink water.".

Under the Freedom of Information Act 2000 please provide me with the following information:
1) Confirmation, or not, if the article in The Sun is in any way true.
2) If true, the provider of the online training session, whether it be the BBC itself or any external provider.
3) If true, the number of BBC staff who have taken or who have arranged to take the course up to 22nd January 2021.
4) If true, the cost to the BBC of providing this service.

I look forward to receiving a prompt and informative reply.

Yours faithfully,

Mr A Willmore
