The sinister workings of a serial killer's mind are exposed when a fair arrives in Kirkcaldy. Read by Steven McNicoll.

Great short, excellently read. Recommended.

Hi JNW, I agree almost completely with Truthy, I too will try others and I always appreciate suggestions as I often miss stuff, I tried the Annika Stranded series which is a bit similar and is still on iplayer but couldn't get on with that either.

She was a joy to know via the boards. My heart goes out to her family and to those of you that meet regularly here.

Back from a journey I tried the 1st ep this afternoon but couldn't get into it. The fact that it is a reality/docu narrative discouraged me perhaps I will try again one of the other episodes... More to my taste if it'd been in play form.
Thanks for posting, suggestions are very welcome.

Thanks for the heads-up on this. It seems the feeds have disappeared from the BBC. I'm struggling to find out if this is a temporary glitch or a more permanent change of the BBCs feed provision, doesn't seem to be much info being made public on this. I'll post back if/when I find anything out.

I'm also missing the hls links, more so each succeeding day without them. Is there anything I can do to help restore them?

Hi, I noticed that the Beebotron Lite (v4) links appear to not be updating since around 13/09/2018.
I find the HLS links very useful, and hope they can be restored.

Stumbled across this and got hooked on the two stories. A series of podcasts on a real investigation - the "Ratlines" one is my pick. What do you think?
I've now re-written the code and uploaded the results, so:

The Radio 4 Extra listing for the seven days beginning 15/09/18 has been posted at the following permanent link:

This contains the online listing and the pdf: hover the mouse over the 'pdf' button and right-click and 'save as' to download, or left-click to display and then possibly print through the pdf viewer.

The rtf version is no longer produced, but there is a printer-friendly html version under the 'print-frendly' button; download and viewing is as per the procedure above for the pdf.

An archive is being built up - see the 'archive' button. Archive versions are also available under the 'print-friendly' button.

Note that the online version now lands on the current programme; to read next week's list early, use the 'Archive' drop-down list.

There have been extensive changes, and bugs might have crept in.  If you spot any anomalies, please let me know.

Memorial Service for JANARU

I understand from Jan's DIL that the memorial service takes place in October. She is going to try to arrange streaming the ceremony. Details of the event will be posted to this thread as members may want to join in online. Date yet to be notified.
