One of my planned projects, awaiting me moving somewhere with better
Freeview reception than here, is to record R3/R4/R7 off-air at high quality,
combine with publicly-available schedule data and present the results to me
as a podcast feed.

The BBC's Realplayer and podcast feeds are very poor quality and quite
tiring to listen to, as well as not providing 100% coverage.

A: Zero. Nobody knew they were there.
