The new version of the BBC iPlayer rolling out to YouView retail set top boxes from retail and YouView BT boxes currently does not include On Demand Radio. As a result, there will be no BBC radio programmes available by going back in time in the TV Guide, or in search or browse.

The BBC have posted on their website an explanation for this: “This is because the effort required to support on-demand radio listening via TVs is significant but TVs are not a significant way that people are using to listen to on-demand radio content. You can continue to enjoy live radio on all Freeview, Freesat and YouView devices and live and on demand radio via BBC iPlayer Radio on computers, tablets and smart phones.”

More information can be found on the BBC iPlayer website here.
