hoping this is still current and accurate, I'm bringing it to the top of the list, for the benefit of those who ask, when is it on?

British Summer Time can sometimes confuse things

I will ask Hilary Hazzard at BBC World Service Audience Relations to confirm or otherwise correct

email from Richard, Prague, Czech Republic
Telephone:

Would it be possible to place on this page (or on any page of a particular programme) broadcasting days and times?

They are not there now and one has to go through the hassle of finding this information in Radio schedules.

Thanks for considering my suggestion.

Best regards

Richard

The programme seems to have vanished from Saturday's World Service schedules. Anyone know what's going on?

Now seems to be on Sunday at 10.30 BST. At least I won't have to listen to The Archers omnibus

London not calling

I think you're right, Quintin. Like you I tuned in this morning (at various times!) but with no success. The schedules on the BBC world site seem specifically designed to not tell you when anything is on. But I think you're right. Certainly, I'll have another go at 10.30 BST (9.30 GMT) on Sunday morning.

I found 10.30 on Sunday morning a good time for it.

Yep, from my pov, it's better too: 10:30 Sun morning (generally less busy or creamcrackered than early Sat morn), or catch it in bed at 10:30 on Sun evening to take your mind off Monday.
