Locating Radio Scotland programme playlists

Post categories:

We're regularly asked where the programme playlists have gone now the link on the top menu bar has been removed. Worry not, they still exist!

All BBC Radio websites were redesigned and follow a similar format. Playlists can now be found on the same page as the episode of the programme to which they relate.

Here are a couple of examples:

As you can see the majority of the show playlists have been enhanced (with the exception of some specialist programmes such as Pipeline) and now link songs directly to the artist page within the BBC music website where you can find out much more and see where else the artist's music is being played on the BBC.

These pages are never over-written or deleted, so even when the programme is no longer available to listen to, you can still see which songs were played.

So how do you find them? The easiest way is to click on "Programmes" from the Radio Scotland website menu bar, and navigate using A-Z to the programme in which you are interested. (At this point you could add as a favourite). Under the heading "Available Now on BBC iPlayer" you will see a list of currently available episodes. If these have a link to "music played" then a playlist is live on the page.

Just click the link to the programme episode and you should find what you are looking for.

You can normally expect to see playlists appear within one working day of broadcast.
