  • Comment number 1.

    This is a great idea, I'd like to get some clarification on one line of the rules though. "first broadcast in English in the UK between 1 October 2010 and 30 September 2011 or first uploaded/published for free listening online in the UK" Does this mean non UK shows in English, provided over the internet and available in the UK can be entered ? (e.g. shows produced in the US, Canada, Australia etc)

    Hello M Hudson

    I've checked with the appropriate authorities and you're correct. As long as online programmes are in English and freely available in the UK and meet the date requirement the originating country doesn't matter.

    Many thanks
