Out of sync Playlist & Listen Again at World Service

I am having problems accessing the show. Am i the only one?

when I click on "listen" I get a show from a few weeks back, the June 28 show, or sometimes I get the July 5 show, but for the past couple weeks I have been unable to get the show which is listed (with tracks) as the most recent one aired. Very odd.

Is there any way this can be fixed? if it's a problem on my end?

On the home page of my site is a link to BBC World Service that takes you straight to the latest show, with a further link to the playlist on the BBC site where the sound and the list seem to be in sync

I finally figured out a way to make it work. I changed the preferences to "real player" instead of media player and when i did that it played the most recent show, instead of repeating old shows.

I have a macintosh, so maybe it's some glitch with media player and macs.

Anyway, thanks again for your help in solving this. I'm glad I can now enjoy the show again every week.
