I am back with an apology
« on: February 17, 2018, 11:37:41 AM »
I do not know how long ago - I first used the Beebotron, but it was long ago and helped me find radio programmes.

So thanks for still being here and sorry not to have been providing attention and support.

Now I mostly I find what I need via BBC websites and general internet searches.

I am still not very technically competent and get overwhelmed with search results and not sure from where to seek reliable information of all sorts.

Right now I am curious about the cast of Radio Four Extra's Dick Francis - Dramatised novel in 5 half hour series.

In my search a link to The Beebotron came up and I signed in easily.

So two questions - where can I get a complete cast list for that programme - preferably not lace with clickbait advertising?

AND secondly how is it all going for the Beebotron service - might I get better use from it - is it financially viable - if I donate a little how will it be used, where amongst all the posts can I read a summary of how things are NOW?

Thanks for that, even more informtion thn the SuttonElms Website,

The particular voice I was trying to identify was Jack May, late of Nelson Archer fame, which I had muddled with Ian Richardson's and his Fraaancis Urquart characterisation in "House of Cards" on TV
