One step forward, one step back

While the slider on the iPlayer is a great improvement on the 5/15 minutes jumps previsouly offered, it is no longer possible to have a default link to my show on iPlayer. The link now changes every week, so it displays the message 'this programme is not available'.

Actually it is available each week, but only if you go down to the various programmes in the bottom panel of iPlayer and click on mine.

Not satisfactory but we can;t figure out how to get around the nuisance of having to go either to the iPlayer general site and hunt for my show; or to the World Service site, and hunt for me there.

Any suggestions as to which is more user-friendly of those two options?

Yes, I've been accessing the show on iPlayer by going to 'show info' then on 'Go to Charlie Gillett's World of Music site. For me, it is easier to access through the World Service site, but that may be because I've been playing hunt and search always to find the shows and I am familiar with the World Service site and how to find things there and I don't know how to go to the iPlayer general site. I also don't know if the set-up is any different on this side of the pond.

(I am most usually on a Mac, if that affects anything)
