BBC's iPlayer loses the plot: ... literally... FOR THREE YEARS !!!!!
Frustrated listeners say the vital last minutes of numerous shows have been left off versions uploaded to the iPlayer service.
They branded the problem ‘irritating’, ‘annoying’ and ‘frustrating’ and said it was ruining their enjoyment of the programmes.
Shows such as Dad’s Army and Hancock’s Half Hour have all fallen foul of the problem, which the BBC blames on the system it uses to record programmes.
It says the live sections of radio stations cause the start and end times of programmes to shift, confusing the automatic recording system.
But this is not a new problem for the corporation and has been on its radar for at least three years.
It was raised by the BBC’s own Feedback programme in February 2012 but, with the issue still persisting now, listeners have been forced to again approach the Radio 4 programme, which deals with audience complaints.
