Over the last year we’ve been on an amazing journey through the recent history of Britain, told via the popular music of the last 50 years and the memories of real people who have shared their experiences with our production team and Radio 2 listeners. And you may have noticed that on our ‘listen again’ page we currently have every single one of the 45 plus episodes of The People’s Songs available to hear again in their entirety.

If not, why not head over there and take a listen to any shows that you’ve missed? The subjects covered, the musical genres spanned and, of course, the reminiscences shared have been remarkable and make for some superb listening!

However, please take note that the message on that page which says that there is over a year left to listen to all the episodes is incorrect. The mistake is the result of a technical problem which has made it impossible to change this message though we hoped to have been able to resolve it some time ago. The only alternative would have been to curtail the availability of the programmes which we thought would be very disappointing.

In fact, the series will be available only until a week after the very last show (Episode 50: Merry Xmas Everybody – The People’s Choice) is broadcast: December 11th. So after Wednesday December 18th the series will no longer be available online.

We’re sorry that the ‘listen again’ page is misleading, but hope that you’ll use the next couple of weeks to listen to any shows that you’ve missed over the year or simply listen again to your favourites. We couldn’t have done it without you…

    Thank you BBC for making this series available to the world. I have listened in each week and have thoroughly enjoyed each episode. Even though the content, in general was with reference to the UK, I still found myself relating the content to my own experiences as a child, teenager and adult, here in Australia. The music was fantastic; the narrative was fantastic; the comments from the "public" was fantastic.

    What would be useful in the future is if these full sets could be made visible to hardware Internet radios and all other TV/STB iPlayer clients - looks as though I'll have to play it through my laptop...
