Interesting to see how popular the BBC7 titles are doing on the BBC iPlayer rankings;
… We’ve had quite a good week on the BBC iPlayer, with six BBC Radio 7 titles in the top eight “most popular” radio programmes.
These were: Doctor Who (peaking at no.1 on Tuesday) The News Quiz (no.4, Monday and Friday), The Navy Lark (no. 4, Wednesday), Sherlock Holmes (three separate titles: no.7 on Tuesday, no5 on Thursday & Friday), Revolting People (no.7 on Thursday and Flight of the Conchords (No.6 on Friday).
I do find it amusing to see our archive programmes jostling for places in the chart alongside The Archers, The Chris Moyles Show, and Russell Brand! As a small digital only network, we certainly seem to be holding our own.

Australian Lecture Tour Details
In May, Chris Bray (then 24) and Clark Carter (then 23), both from Sydney, began hauling, paddling and dragging 500kgs of equipment and supplies behind them in unique carts they designed and built themselves. Their mission: to cross 700kms of snow, frozen lakes, mud plains, boulder fields, tundra, endless jagged ice, shattered rock and even rapids.
