    There are 3 improvements to the Radio Iplayer functionality that I would like to see, and know whether the BBC developers have considered;

    1. Automatic resume of programs interrupted for any reason, other than the loss of the Broadband connection itself.

    2. Automatic re-connection and resume of programs interrupted by a lack of Bandwidth by swapping to the alternative Bandwidth.

    3. A "Playlist" feature, whereby a number of programs can be selected to play back-to-back without resort to going to the computer and making another selection. Similar to "Favourites", but more like "My Own Radio Channel"!

    Thoughts BBC? Anyone?

    I strongly agree with your 3rd suggestion, we listen, almost exclusively, to iplayer programmes. It would be really useful to be able to select several programmes or episodes, we frequently wait until several episodes are available and enjoy a couple of hours of Paul Temple ot Miss Marple.

    I'd like to be able to restart a programme I've really enjoyed listening to. This function was available on the 'old' BBC iPlayer, but has diasappeared from the new inferior version.

    The sound quality on Radio 4Extra is diabolical. Please can we either have the old iPlayer back until this problem is resolved, or a speedy resolution. Swapping to a lower bandwidth does NOT resolve the problem.
