Thanks to everyone for their help and information. The revised and working
widget is at -  http://widgets.yahoo.com/widgets/bbc-radio-iplayer-plus

For the next release I'm looking at various improvements in the look and
feel of the app and providing fuller program information.

Thanks

Ray

That's a useful set of links - thanks! I'd looked at feeds.bbc.co.uk a while
back for my purposes, but found a slight problem in that there's no link to
the mediaselector, so you'd have to parse the <id> tag to get the PID
(hoping the format of the tag doesn't change!) in order to get RealAudio
links. Perhaps it may be time for me to reconsider that... 

This does illustrate one of the slight problems with mashing BBC data -
there's so many feeds to choose from, and it's not clear which are official
and stable feeds, vs experimental and/or obsolete. So far I know of, have
used, or am using:

feeds.bbc.co.uk/iplayer
www.bbc.co.uk/programmes
www.bbc.co.uk/radio/aod
www.bbc.co.uk/mediaselector/4/mtis/stream
www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/playlist

Some have differing purposes, and I'm sure several of these were only ever
supposed to be internal, but it would be nice to know which particular feeds
we should or shouldn't be using for our experimentation.
