Advantages: Listen to all your favourite programmes at your leisure
Disadvantages: No drama available
I have been listening to Radio 4 for years and I view it as an old friend. However, due to a change in my circumstances, getting to hear some of my favourite programmes has been all but impossible. So until now I have been forced to miss such things as "Start the Week" and "All in the Mind".
No more! If you have a link to the web, and I assume anyone reading this review has, then by using the following link: -
you can listen to most of the programmes that Radio 4 has previously broadcast that week at your leisure. By going to the "Listen Again" web page you are taken to an alphabetical list of the week's listening and via "Realplayer" you can either listen to the complete programme, as I did with "Start the Week" or in the case of "Bookclub" be redirected to a dedicate website where you can listen to a selection of excerpts from past programmes.
I cannot stress enough how good I think this facility is, well done the BBC! Why not make available some of the many radio plays you must have archived?
