Andrew, thanks for the information. It'll be very useful. Ray

I use the Audio on Demand feeds, which you can find at http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/availability/ <station name> .xml >From that you can get a title, synopsis, and link to the mediaselector XML from which you can get the iPlayer and RealAudio links. Only downside is that as far as I'm aware it's only for national radio - I'm sure someone can correct me if local radio is now available. You have to guess a bit at the station names - this is the list of stations I've been able to find so far. http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/availability/radio1.xml http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/availability/radio2.xml http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/availability/radio3.xml http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/availability/radio4.xml http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/availability/fivelive.xml http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/availability/6music.xml http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/availability/bbc7.xml http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/availability/1xtra.xml http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/availability/asiannetwork.xml http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/availability/radioscotland.xml http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/availability/radioulster.xml http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/availability/radiofoyle.xml http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/availability/radiowales.xml http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod/availability/radiocymru.xml Of course when the Beeb get round to finishing off the /programmes website we should all be able to get XML feeds of radio/tv data by date, genre, availability on iplayer, etc, etc all from one place. _____ <blocked::http://www.reincubate.com/> reincubate Andrew Dancy, Partner, <blocked::http://www.reincubate.com/> Reincubate E: andrew <blocked::mailto:and...@reincubate.com> @reincubate.com, T: +44 (0) 7941 434132 Accelerating growth of start-up & entrepreneurial businesses _____ I've had a look at the current feeds and there doesn't appear to be one that gives the links to the listen again program streams . Is it possible (preferably the RP source locations)? If so, where can I find the information? If it is not done is there a likelihood that access could be granted for the widget to maintain its functionality?
