Whipping cream: cold or room temp?

I've always heard that cream should be whipped cold, straight from the fridge using a chilled bowl and whisk. I was watching Gordon Ramsay's Ultimate Cookery Course (Season 1, episode 11) and he says room temperature cream whips faster. He suggests letting the cream come to room temp 30 minutes before you begin whipping. Why do I feel this is going against everything I've ever learned?
