I’m considering adding the vast archive of the BBC Radio’s uniformly excellent In Our Time round-table discussions to JURN. However, I’m unsure if these can be accessed by listeners outside of the UK? Can readers of this blog post a comment, please, if they can listen to and download these programmes from outside the UK?

Sadly the BBC uses an undifferented/gibberish URL structure for its per-programme records. Its record page for its latest show on Tristram Shandy, for instance, is at: http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b0418phf But the index of In Our Time could be indexed in a basic way in JURN, via the URL for the A-Z listing pages: http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/features/in-our-time/archive/*/all (where * is a wildcard)
