BBC Radio is no longer on Freeview after 4pm and 5pm.

At 5pm tonight I was lowering my venetian blinds after listening to a radio4 programme about cyborgs, when all-of-a-sudden the sound and picture on my TV which was tuned in to Freeview, conked out ... I thought it was the screeching sound of the blinds going down that caused this 'blank out'.

After a few seconds a red screen was displayed saying...

**This BBC Radio service is not available on Freeview: Weekdays 5pm to midnight Saturday 4pm to 1.00am Sunday 4pm to midnight You can continue to listen to BBC Radio services via FM, digital radio, digital cable and satellite TV, at bbc.co.uk/radio or at individual websites.

Has this just happened today?

Just checked here in Shropshire - Radio 4 still load and clear on Freeview. Regional thing, perhaps?

Could be a regional thingy, right enough. I wonder if a retune might help.

Just noticed in the link that it says from Wed 8 June, that would make it dating from 2011.

Maybe you could dig a little more in the BBC web site.

Thanks, Blackhat. It looks as if a retune will not help if you live in Scotland ... thanks to 'teuchters' TV (Alba) :o[

...not to worry, as the FM signal for Radio4 is still loud and clear 24/7, at the moment :o]

Get yourself a DAB radio, signal should be strong & clear in Glasgow.

They're not massively expensive anymore either

Argos DAB Radio

Alba might be watched by one Highlander and his dog but last Hogmanay it was easily the best channel both up to and after the bells
