Rats, should have ripped it for ya! My apologies.

I should have taken a pot shot at recording it, my bad! Hope it'll be round again in not too many months

Good but time slot too short to allow plot to develop.

Hail Kiddo!
Thanks for posting this I missed it!
Hope all as well as can be your side in the aftermath of those horrid fires.
Am on the scrounge ... having been dragged by the Grim Reaper kicking 'n screaming into the real world ... it's been tough and expected to get tougher!
Wondered if Follett's Vulcan thingy was worthwhile and if so, if anyone might oblige with the 1st ep which is no longer available on L.A.
Sorry to bother the Beebotron collective with this ...
In anticipated gratitude.

Cool links Ed, many thanks from a content starved Tru!

Lothbrok thanks so much, there has been a dire good or even reasonable content shortage for quite some weeks. Your suggestion is welcome. Will get back to you with feedback.

Excellent! I'll give it a whirl ... thanks TF ...
Hope all well with you over on Blighty.
Below is a picture which should make you howl with laughter! Only I don't know how to insert images on this site! :-(

All bests, 8)

Thanks Ed, and yes! The point is that I am not listening from Blighty!
Jim so very kindly bailed me out! Hence job done! But I'll check out your link, for which, thanks.
The problem is due to cock-ups perpetrated by incompetent cretins occupying positions they have no business to. Indeed the BBC needs to sack all those with jobs through patronage and instead recruit from the massive labour resource of the unemployed, there they will be able to find motivated dedicated staff able and willing to execute their duties conscientiously.

Wow, thanks so much Jim.
 8) :-* ;D

Can anyone help with Listen Again for Eddie Mair's PM of 27/7/17.
An "unavailable to listen in your area" window pops up. Nothing doing at all after many attempts.

Thank you very much.

You know Ed I've a strange sense of Déjà Vue here ... from earlier broadcasts of that episode.

Don't think I've tuned in before and did so quite by chance as I live streamed News at Ten and stayed tuned in whilst clearing away in the kitchen after supper!
Really entertaining and good value.

Will insects inherit the earth?
The Infinite Monkey Cage, Series 16 Episode 4 of 6
Available to listen for 29 days

Will Insects Inherit the Earth?

Brian Cox and Robin Ince are joined on stage by comedian Dave Gorman, zoologist Tim Cockerill and forensic entomologist Amoret Whitaker. They'll be discovering the joy of creepy crawlies, why the flea is the ultimate master of Darwinian evolution, and whether those pesky cockroaches will really have the last laugh if we are unlucky enough to be wiped out by a nuclear explosion. They'll be discovering how and why insects have been by far the most successful group of organisms during the history of life on planet earth, and why we simply couldn't do without them.

I wondered why it was so good ...

... 1967 ...

Things ain't what they used to be!
