I know this has been brought up before, but seeing as it hasn't been resolved I'd like to bring it up again...

Why do the recordings of programmes made available as listen again streams and downloads cut out so much of the original broadcast content?

E.G. 6-0-6 on Wednesday 21st June 2006 - an hour long broadcast, but the stream/download lasts only 37 minutes.

Podcasts are an excellent idea, and potentially a significant step in revolutionising the way in which many license payers listen to and watch BBC output. But why introduce it and publicise it heavily on air if hasn't been properly tested and therefore doesn't operate as intended?

An organisation with the stature of the BBC should really have this fairly elementary technical issue in the bag.

Yours sincerely
