    The BBC radio stream apparently stopped at 0600 on Wednesday (16th Mar). The boffins at Logitech/Slim Devices say that the BBC is no longer putting out a properly formatted " XML feed " and we just have to wait until Aunty gets round to fixing it.

    IF ANY BBC TECHIE READS THIS, PLEASE FIX IT as a lot of us are missing our BBC fix

    Your best course of action is to use the formal report form as noted here iplayerhelp.external... the actual link to the form is almost hidden click on the words "Contact Us form" to be taken to the form.

    The form appear to be (no it is) a right pain to fill in but the seemingly pointless information has some use I suspect.

    The sooner that you make a report the better the chance is that things will get sorted before a programme expires, also do not think that somebody else will have probably already done the reporting, even if they have a single report can with no evil intent get overlooked.

    Thanks - that was what I was looking for but failed to find. I've just sent the form off - feels like dropping a pebble down a botomless hole.

    This might explain why Friday's episode of Women's Hour Drama (Cottonopolis Episode 5) is not functioning on the iPlayer... but not why today's linked Afternoon Play: Cottonopolis is forever "coming soon" - I have sent off an enquiry... Do you think it will be more effective to use energy to complain?

    Because todays afternoon play was Beirut Days which replaced Cottonopolis.

    As Cottonopolis wasn't broadcast, it won't be available on iPlayer.

    The final 2 parts will be broadcast on Friday 15th April at 9pm.

    For future reference, if the XML feeds are down, you can try the RSS feeds. (The RSS feeds were not affected by the recent XML feeds outage.)

    For those of you with Squeezeboxes, this means switching from the BBCiPlayer plugin to the BBCiPlayerExtra plugin.
