School Radio 'podcasts' offer the programmes from most series for you to download to your computer in mp3 file format. It's a convenient way to use your computer to acquire the programmes for playback either directly from your computer or from the mp3 player of your choice – e.g. an iPod.
Using the podcast service is very simple and allows you to acquire the programmes for use in perpetuity – without the need to complete the order form or cover the cost of the pre-recorded CDs.
Podcasts are currently available for 30 days after transmission and because you can 'subscribe' to the podcast you need never worry about missing an episode because your computer will search for an update automatically.
Information about which School Radio series can be downloaded this way is available from the Podcasts page. Please note that due to rights restrictions we are not able to podcast all programmes.
