TALA: The Archers Listen AgainEdit

If you ever miss an episode of The Archers you can listen again at: - http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/archers/catch/

For other Radio 4 programmes you can use the official "Listen Again" page at: - http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/progs/listenagain.shtml but many find the Beebotron version simpler to use: - http://beebotron.org/public/iradio4.html

(The equivalent pages for Radio 7 are: - http://www.bbc.co.uk/bbc7/programmes/a-z/player and: - http://beebotron.org/public/ibbc7.html)

If you find the links on the official BBC Listen Again pages (or within iPlayer) are not working correctly, then you might try Sebastian Lisken's oft repeated tip to form a link yourself in the following fashion, for Radio 4:

rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk/radio4/HHMM_WWW.ra

or for Radio 7:

rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk/bbc7/HHMM_WWW.ra

where HH, MM and WWW are variables, denoting the start time and weekday of your desired programme.

For example: Last Sunday's episode of The Archers can normally be found at:

rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk/radio4/1900_sun.ra

Last Monday's episode at:

rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk/radio4/1900_mon.ra

Last Tuesday's episode at:

rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk/radio4/1900_tue.ra

Last Wednesday's episode at:

rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk/radio4/1900_wed.ra

Last Thursday's episode at:

rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk/radio4/1900_thu.ra

Last Friday's episode at:

rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk/radio4/1900_fri.ra

Last Sunday's omnibus edition at:

rtsp://rmv8.bbc.net.uk/radio4/1000_sun.ra

(Unfortunately, since wikispaces doesn't recognise the rtsp-prefix as a link type, it will be necessary for you to copy and paste the addresses above into your browser.)

iPlayer users wishing to browse by schedule can bookmark the following link(s), which directly take you to the current day: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/radio/bbc_radio_four/0000-00-00 This works for all radio and TV channels, but you need to know how to express a channel's name; the digits in those names mostly appear as a word: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/tv/bbc_one/0000-00-00 but there is one notable exception: http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/radio/bbc_7/0000-00-00
