Customer Reviews

Good listening

This is the BBC doing what it does best and the best in the world at it. Insightful reporting that rarely loses perspective and generally has the balance, politically and emotionally, so missing in some other channels.

The thinking man's (or woman's) podcast - very very good

Very, very cool....

This is so great. The BBC produces quality documentaries, and now I can download them, and listen to them whilst out running! I listened to the whole of the India series the other day, plus others, whilst running round the track. I didn't want to stop. Two and three quarter hours later I did. I could hardly walk the next day, but I could hold my own in a conversation about the rat people of India / 3GP phone movie revolution of present..... Podcasts + BBC documentaries / science programme = cool, cool ,cool! I guess this is what the licence fee pays for, and well worth it!
