Hi. I work for Radio Wales so I thought I'd just let you know that as soon as each edition of Siadwel finishes on Friday evenings at 7, you'll be able to download (and keep) each episode as a free mp3 podcast, available worldwide from the BBC Radio Wales website (click on Podcasts) and also from iTunes etc (under BBC or Comedy).
Also, I know it's not quite the same, but outside of Wales you can listen if you have digital sattellite TV or cable, as well as online of course - again visit the Radio Wales website and click on Info.
I think Naked Video doesn't have a general series page on the "programmes" section of the BBC website as it predates the schedule system we currently use - programme pages for older series are a bit patchy.
Indeed! This forum does very well on Google, its obviously coded very well! We just periodically like to keep an eye on how our programmes do on Google, and I thought it worth pointing the podcast out.
Can you explain why regional programs aren't broadcast nationwide?
I am a complete comedy nut and it really annoys me that some excellent shows are only broadcast in their country of origin, when I asked the same about Still Game I was told that the Scottish humour wouldn't translate well to England.
That's a very big question, and not one I'm really qualified to answer. But strictly in technical terms, there are a limited number of transmitters in the UK, and a limited number of slots available on them. So even if the BBC was minded to make all its programmes available everywhere (over the air in the traditional way), when you look at it from a straightforward transmission point of view, its probably not possible (but I'm not an authority on that by any means). However, given the worldwide availability of Listen Online and iPlayer, pretty much everything broadcast by the BBC is available online nowadays. I appreciate that's not the same thing as listening on a traditional set, but it's a start.
