    Works fine at this end, there's some interviews at the beginning before the concert starts, that might be it?

    Who is the presenter on this broadcast? She managed to call Leighton Lucas, Leighton Lewis and also gave Dyke their PC name of "The Dyke Mills Band". Can't call them Black Dyke on the good old BBC!!!

    Just opens iPlayer with loads of progs. What title am I looking for?

    Ignore that. I was looking for a TV prog, not radio. Found it.

    Wonder why they didn't Televise it? Was looking for it on iPlayer on catchup tv and it was absent.

    Unfortunately they only televise a proportion of the concerts. The audio bradcast is still available in the radio section of the BBC i-player.
