Anyone else here find it gone? I've been listening for about a year, and miss it. I recently reloaded my whole system; I don't think that's the problem, but I can't find any news on the matter, anywhere.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for looking into it. I am not in the UK, but I used to be able to listen using "Add location" (in Foobar) with the below link:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/r6_aaclca.pls

Perhaps I've been listening illegitimately. For about a week or two now, this has not been working. I get this error message:

Unrecoverable playback error: Sample rate of 32000 Hz not supported by this device

This may reflect limitations of my sound card, but the stream has definitely changed. There is also this stream:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/listen/live/r3.asx

It will play, but it is only 49 kbps. Not the same at all. All the BBC radio streams were at least 128 kbps, but not those I am able to access now. Either they are having trouble, or they are trying to quarantine non-Uk listeners.

Just listening now to BBC Radio 3 from Italy (airing "Words and Music"), with TuneIn Radio on my iPad. They let me choose between a 320kbps and a 48k streams AAC which both work and a 48k WMA which doesn't.

Edit: but, listening carefully, the 320k SQ is way too low and looking at the bandwidth usage of my connection, both choices score about 8kb/s: the 320 is actually a faked 48! Now, what does this mean?
