    For the last couple of days it will only play TV programmes, not radio ones.

    I have tried all the usual remedies, closing the app, resetting the IPad, and even deleted it then reinstalled it and reset the IPad again, but no, it still refuses to play radio programmes.

    This is really annoying, as I have been using it as my radio when in bed, and like to listen to my choice of drama and comedy programmes while dropping off to sleep, when I wake up in the night and in the morning while checking emails etc.

    Has anyone else noticed this? Any suggestions of a solution?

    After reading your problem I looked at my BBC player and it had a notice on it telling me they have moved radio to BBC radio player and down load the new app.

    I didn't think the new radio app allowed listening to "catchup" radio. I generally have Radio 4 and 4 extra progs in my Favourites.
    When I read the bumpf about it I could only see listening to live radio or downloading podcasts was offered so I didn't bother with it
    Most of what I listen to does not offer a podcast.

    They seem to have sorted out whatever the problem was, as radio catchup is now working!!
