The phasing in of the new web iPlayer Radio has advanced a little today.

Old programme page: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m0000842
New programme player: https://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/play/m0000842

Until today they were running independently but now when playing a show through the old programme page you now get re-directed to the new player, removing the previous one.

Can't say it has went down too well with me, the new radio programme player spage is about as sparse as it can get, no programme information and no tracklisting, which is essential if you are keen to track down (excuse the unintended pun) a particular ong you might have heard on the radio.

Cutbacks in some areas, but a new video platform called BBC Reel has been launched by the commercial arm of the BBC:

Good lord, that needs remedying - you'd be forgiven for thinking you'd landed on a rogue site. Terrible brand management by a company the size of BBC Worldwide.

Heavens, never noticed the differences before between the BBC One regions and they're so obvious when you put them next to each other like that. Mind you BBC Two ain't any better.

There's also a link to this at the bottom where it says CBBC and CBeebies online : https://www.bbc.com/aboutthebbc/whatwedo/A%20dedicated%20experience%20to%20inform,%20educate,%20entertain%20and%20inspire%20kids,%20that%20is%20trusted%20by%20parents

404 not found of course. Probably should've linked to CBBC's website, which is correctly linked where they talk about the TV channels.
