  2. I tried to listen to “BBC Radio 4 – Big Bang Day – 1 of 5 The Electron” but had problems: –

    Clicking on the Play icon started buffering, then quickly showed “error opening file”

    Trying to download the file got me a file “BBC Radio 4 – Big Bang Day – 1 of 5 The Electron.m4a.ff.mp3” of only 6KB and unplayable.

    I use Firefox, but got similar results on IE6.
    If it is relevant, neither gave a right-click menu of “Download linked file as..” I used the nearest, “save link as ..”

    Can you help?

  3. The host took the files down for exceeding bandwidth (they were very popular). I posted them to UseNet – where you can search for them using newzbot.com (see also another article on here recently about how to do this).

    ALSO some people have now started sharing the files on BitTorrent.

    I will be reposting these files as soon as possible – so stay tuned to the RSS feed for this site and look out for them sometime in the next week.

    Sorry about the delay!
