That was nothing to do with the BBC. It was all down to Adobe\'s insecurity complex.

The BBC elects to impose the software on us! It seems to me that much ink has been spilled on the subject of Auntie\'s ill-advised choices in that domain.

Utterly unpredictable (quite maddeningly so):

BBC Radio 4 Extra - Armando Iannucci\'s Charm Offensive, Series 3, Episode 5

Sorry, this episode is not currently available on BBC iPlayer Radio


This is in spite of the fact that episodes 4 and 6, broadcast respectively 1 week before and 1 week after this episode, are both still available (in each case, for the anticipated remainder of the advertised 4-week period).

So much for the proms being available for a month.....some are...many aren\'t..  I am sick and tired of seeing that the episode will soon be available, when it never is :-(.   BAD BBC!

Heya! GD, nice to hear from you.

Sorry though to hear the same slip ups are going on at Auntie\'s as last year :(

It was a rough summer....sick a lot.  Almost forgot about the Proms.....and I am ticked beyond belief that Prom 35 wouldn\'t play for me.  Oh well...the joys of Auntie!

How are YOU doing, Truthy?   Did you ever get my Christmas card?

Sorry to hear about the health issues. Sure I got the card, very pretty it was too. Apologies for not reciprocating. I\'m a poor communicator ... outside of email that is!

BBC web sites can be erratic and it is very frustrating. Hopefully, in due course the glitch will be fixed. I\'m not a very keen Promenader for some reason or another. Though I do very much appreciate classical music.

Have you tried using the bbc\'s glitch link. If you complain, after a few days, generally, the error will be corrected.

I can\'t remember where the link was posted here on the boards, but if I can find it again I\'ll copy it on this thread.

Cheers,
Tru
