    The lifestyle I live does not fit into a 'live' streaming of programmes, and I have found the A-Z listings for Radio 4 & 7 perfect. It was seemless and easy to use two updates ago, was then shunted to a side page and now, with Radio 4extra and Radio Player, I cannot find it at all. (I think the Radio Player concept great, I just wished it worked.)
    Is there an idealogical/opperational reason for this?
    I don't want to trawl throught a schedule, including repeats to find the best offering as yet not listened to, and it used to be gloriously easy to sample the best the Beeb had to offer.
    Please give us an A-Z listing!
    Matt

    TO CLARIFY. The A-Z exists for the entire iPlayer and no station filter is available. This makes it impractical. It also takes some finding, away from the main Radio Player interface.

    There is technically an A-Z but it is for all radio together so seems to fail your requirements. www.bbc.co.uk/iplaye...

    However many people have found that the RSS feed pages rendered in a browser are useful.

    feeds.bbc.co.uk/ipla... Radio 4
    feeds.bbc.co.uk/ipla... Radio 7 (as still remaining)
    feeds.bbc.co.uk/ipla... Radio 4 extra (as so far broadcast)

    When displayed in some browsers these can be sorted by name or by date and also split by genre.

    You are welcome, until the Welsh version of iPlayer was updated to be the same as the English version it was possible to use that, but sadly no longer.

    I gave up trying to find the Radio 4 extra A-Z through the front door and attempted an alternative approach.
    By analogy I tried this link with the previous Radio 7 link,
    www.bbc.co.uk/radio4....
    This works in exactly the same way as the previous A-Z for Radio 7.
