I have listened to it, fascinating, at about 24 mins in there is something extraordinary.

Well, well, well. Today I was listening for numbers stations, so I was expecting to here spooky stuff, BUT...

Tuning through 7.100 upwards (so through the amateur SSB portion) with the filters wound down a bit, but not too much, and tuning quite fast to get through the band I heard the words "frequency, freq, freq, frequency, frequency, freq, frequency". I nearly jumped out of my seat I can tell you. I went down again and repeated it...same thing. I tried tuning and listening the other way, not the same at all. Back UP and yep, there it was.

I opened the filters wide and it stopped, screw them down again and tune up...freq, frequency, frequency.

An amazing and shocking effect.

I resent having to "sign in" to play material that my licence fee has helped to finance.
Seems like the B.B.C. is going the way of many other on-line services, amassing data just because its there to collect.
Thanks rambo1152 for that link avoiding the B.B.C. player.
I thought the programme was over-dramatised (as usual), but nevertheless interesting. Tony.
The job "couldn't be done".
He didn't know that,
So he did it.

As a public service, we want to make sure the BBC is the best it can be for everyone. That’s why we’re making it more personal.
I don't need any licence to listen to the radio.... so why should I need to 'sign in' and provide personal details to listen to this?
