Can be listened to from anywhere in the world and even recorded, if you use a program like No.23 recorder (shareware) or Audacity (freeware). Both grab the signal from your soundcard while the show is playing.

My Phonostar software uses EPG data, but unfortunately BBC do not write the radioplay titles into their EPG title field and fill the info field with generic info on the Afternoon Play series. So those HMS Surprise ones only showed up as "Afternoon Play" with no further detail info. I only found out by clicking through to the BBC site to find out what was on offer. This way I still miss good BBC stuff, because the wishlist option/autorecord option of Phonostar looks for keywords that are in the EPG, not on the website...
Not quite sure - I think it takes information from the website but not the EPG. You get a list of all current shows, whether there are episodes available or not, and have to click through or subscribe to see the list of current episodes. If you subscribe it records all episodes of the show until you tell it to stop. So I wouldn't have seen "HMS Surprise" in my list, unless I had subscribed to Afternoon Play. I don't think it does keyword search at all.

Comedy by Simon Brett about a couple living - or perhaps imprisoned - on the Costa del Sol
And this is what shows up on the on the EPG at phonostar.de:
27.08. | 15:15 - 16:00
Hörspiel & Hörbuch
BBC Radio 4 "The Afternoon Play"
Dramas which delight and surprise.
Incidentally the BBC seem to be the only station that fills the EPG in this way. All other stations I listen to, German or otherwise, put the specific show info in the EPG, not the generic series info**. No need to click through to the websites. Might be worth a letter to the BBC, maybe? After all, they do have the info available, they just don't give it to us ;-). I'll check with phonostar.de first for the technical details.
Or maybe not --my hard drive is filling up with loads of BBC radio plays. It's probably better not to know what is on :-D.
