Frequently Asked Questions

How can I catch up on a programme I missed?

You can catch up with programmes on BBC iPlayer. There are two ways to use this service. You can play a programme and watch it online with ‘Click to play', or you can download the programme, store it on your computer for up to 30 days and watch it offline.

Please note that BBC TV programmes are only available to users in the UK at present, though most radio programmes are available outside the UK as well.

If the programme is not available to watch on BBC iPlayer, you can check the schedules at BBC Programmes to see if it is due to be repeated within the next seven days.

Use the A to Z on the site to find the page for the programme and then click on the ‘Coming up' tab. Unfortunately, we can't give information about repeats at later dates as schedules are only confirmed about ten days in advance.
