BBC: iPlayer Radio
Use this website to play current and archived programming from BBC Radio over the Internet, negating the usual constraints of space and time. Choose what to listen to by BBC station, such as BBC Radio 4 or BBC World Service; by category, such as drama, music, or comedy; by Featured; or by Most Popular. Within the Music Category, readers will find an hour long program looking back at the Beatles’ last live performance. This show took place on the roof of Apple Corps headquarters in Savile Row in London in 1969 and was titled “I Hope We Passed the Audition”, based on John Lennon’s remarks when the group stopped playing. Additionally, in the Featured category there are a variety of re-broadcast TED talks on the Ted Radio Hour, and, in Most Popular, sports news from Sunday’s football matches. It’s also possible to find more programming by searching or simply browsing, such as a 3-minute broadcast of Dominic West (familiar to American TV viewers from cable shows The Wire or The Affair) reciting Lord Byron’s 1813 poem, “She Walks in Beauty”.
