Today we’ve launched new homepages in beta for 55 BBC radio stations. You can access them via links on the usual homepages or by typing “beta” into a BBC radio station address (e.g. beta.bbc.co.uk/radio2 and beta.bbc.co.uk/radioulster).

Visit our welcome page for a guide to the new features and read more about the release on the internet blog.

The beta homepages test new designs and features as part of development of the Radio and Music Product - a one stop shop for listening to live and on demand radio from the BBC, on any digital device. This development is in line with our overall strategy for BBC Online to develop a Radio and Music product that brings all BBC Radio together in one place, available on mobile, tablets, desktop computers, digital radio and connected TV. 

We want your feedback to help us to continue to improve these pages, so please let us know what you think (see http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/feedback for information on how to feed back to us).

    Comment number 1.

    SUN 17 6 12 1315

    Can someone being PAID to work today at BBC IPLAYER fix the stream for COME FLY WITH ME; THE VAN HEUSEN STORY which was originally broadcast ONE WEEK AGO at 2000 10/6/12.
    As with MONTHS of any programme in this same slot, the stream is NOT LONG ENOUGH to at 30 mins to include both the FULL EPISODE and the WEEK OLD NEWS/TRAFFIC REPORT!! so the relevant programme which has been streamed CUTS OUT LOSING 5 MINS OF CONTENT!
    This has been reported, taking AGES with the inefficient IPLAYER FAULT REPORT form, for previous programmes in this SAME SLOT; such as THE BOB HOPE STORY [which managed to still broadcast ALL SIX PROGRAMMES with 5 MINS MISSING FROM THE END OF EVERY EPISODE!] BEHIND THE BREL and now this latest series start.

    SURELY if those fault reports were made AND ACKNOWLEDGED and even REPAIRED for the final episode in the BREL series, then the PAID staff can be ON ALERT for any future truncated programmes being streamed for THE SAME SLOT?

    Why is it JUST this station and this time that manages to be affected? Other stations manage to stream a 30 min prog without any omitted content so why treat R2 listeners so shabbily.

    You have had SIX DAYS TO FIX THIS and now have SEVEN HOURS to fix this latest failure before it becomes unavailable.

    So PLEASE fix this before that happens.

    Thank you

    If it's any consolation, I can assure you all BBC radio stations can mess up their playback window timings because of the antiquated and expensive method the BBC use for putting radio programmes onto the playback system.
