Can you link to my sponsorship page or promote it on air?
We get asked this a LOT, which shows how charitable Radio 1 listeners are. As part of the BBC, Radio 1 has to be plainly fair and equal in which charities we support. So we support Comic Relief, Sport Relief and Children in Need.
We hope you understand we don't promote any individual sponsorship requests because we get so many and we couldn't be fair about it. We always wish you good luck though in however you're raising money.

Also the terms of Apple's App Store are focused on commercial business and so unfortunately aren't the kind of rules the BBC can agree to. We are in negotiations with Apple to resolve these issues and very much hope to develop an app.

We are aiming to improve turnaround times for shows in iPlayer. Currently we can't guarantee exact times between show end and its appearance on iPlayer. We are working to address this and deliver shows within 2-3 hours of broadcast. We are sorry we can't get this show to you when you want it, but thank you for raising the problem - it is good to know how important this issue is to our audience.
If you experience temporary loss of sound quality while listening live to Radio 1 online, you may be suffering from problems with your internet connection. In this instance, your internet service provider may be able to help. If the problem seems to be limited to iPlayer and you've eliminated a connection issue, please refer to iPlayer Help.
The legal complications over music rights mean that for now, we're unable to offer podcasts which feature music outside the UK. Our Introducing music podcast is available to download all over the world, because it features only unsigned acts. You can also subscribe to our stories, entertainment news and some of our DJs' podcasts
Although we would love to make our podcasts available worldwide, some BBC podcasts are restricted to users in the UK. This is mostly because of very complicated music rights agreements which prevent us from making the podcasts globally available.

We're glad to say the BBC is currently working on a project to make our archive of sessions available. It's a long term and complex project due to legalities and music rights but the team are working on resolving the issues. Keep an eye out!

The tracklistings for every show now appear on the episode page for that particular show - where you can also listen in iPlayer. So if you go to the date of the show you want, you can scroll down the page and see the tracks there.
After the show has expired in the iPlayer (7 days after broadcast) the tracklistings will stay on the page.
If you go to http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/petetong, all Tong's old-style tracklistings for shows (before we relaunched the website) are clickable on the Tracklistings archive 2002-2009 link on the right.
There are three ways:
It will go to your local BBC radio station first. Please read all the terms and conditions.
The music uploader is only for artists in the UK, so we can manage the volume of music.
You can also get good advice on the BBC Introducing site if you're a new act.
2. Email the relevant show with a link to hear your music.Click 'Contact' at the top of all our DJs' pages for their email addresses.
Here are a few tips:

music. Then send your music to the relevant show.
b. Include your contact details (email, phone number etc)
c. Include some biographical information
If your music is selected for play the show's production team will get in touch asking for more details, such as a link to an artist photo or packshot.
3. Post a CD to:

We would love to make our video content available worldwide. At the moment most of our music performance videos (like the Live Lounge) are restricted to the UK. It's because of the costs of streaming video globally and the legal complexities of music rights around live performances.
We have to make the BBC good value for the British public who fund the BBC via the licence fee they pay. We hope to offer video around the whole world in future though.
I'm in the UK but it says I'm not
Sometimes even though you're in Britain you may see a message saying you're not. This could be because your computer is on a foreign-based network, or is routed overseas (sometimes the case with work connections if your employer is not UK-based). Some programs, such as web accelerators, can cause your IP address (your computer's individual identity) to appear as if it is outside the UK. Occasionally it may simply be a network error, so it's worth closing your browser or router and reopening, as a new IP address is allocated which may be UK-based. This is something your internet service provider is usually best-placed to fix.

At the end of June 2011, we took the decision to stop publishing the DVD charts on bbc.co.uk. Following a review we concluded that the publication of these charts on the website no longer aligned with the on-air output of Radio 1 (as they are not mentioned in any programme) and it was unnecessary to duplicate them on our website.

We appreciate the webcam is a bit old school, being still photos which update every so often. We are introducing more live streaming on the webcams - like BeckyCam and certain Live Lounges, like Lady Gaga but we don't have the resources to make the studio webcams a 24-hour operation at the moment.
