    The Friday Play this week about the trouble in Northern Ireland was excellent but when I use the 'listen again' facility the end of the episode is missing. An overrun is a bore but nothing like so annoying as a truncated programme. Come on BBC - get your act together and don't let carelessness spoil the good work.

    Oh, dear, I hadn't realized, I fell asleep half way through. Such an excellent programme, as well. Only too often on listen again, there's a huge overrun from the previous programme, so it's not surprising if the subsequent programme underruns..

    I think the problem here is that the item described as being timed at 58:00 is actually timed in the player at 56:00, and therefore misses its end.

    I believe the original transmission (in 2008) was of the proper length.
