Mon 7 Jan, 9:00 pm – 10:00 pm 60mins

  1. Not showing on iPlayer yet.

    I would like to watch it if it does come up. It’s a shame you have to download that sh*t software though

  2. You don’t have to download the iPlayer software if you have a recent version of flash and a fast enough internet connection.

For the technical minded it appears to be a DNS config option.

  3. I just had a look on the iPlayer site and found out that you don’t have to download anything… but I see you have already replied🙂

  4. BTW… the programme isn’t on there😦

  5. the thing is on google video at the moment
