Despite us Brits being the valiant license fee payers, radio is not treated the same as TV shows by the BBC and Radio is broadcast online for the whole world to enjoy. Regardless of your nationality (with possible exception of North Korea), you can listen live online at:
If, for whatever reason, that fails you, try this one instead which opens as a popup:
Some media players such as Real Player also have radio feeds and you may be able to use those also.
All users will have access to episodes for a minumum of 7 days after their respective broadcasts on the radio section of the BBC iPlayer. Episodes are also made available to listen again on the Cabin Pressure BBC Pages.
Please don’t be tempted to record/download the episodes and make them available online – I know inevitably someone will, but this contravenes the BBC licence. If you want a copy to keep for ever and ever, they will be made available for purchase and won’t be expensive. Let’s face it, it’s worth a couple of quid! Remember that the one thing that drives ANY kind of production is sales, so if you would like continued production, like I do, then buying your own copy would only help the BBC decide to make more!
Hope this helps. How are you feeling about the new series? Excited? Let us all know in the comments.
