We’ll be building up this page of home entertainment suggestions.

BBC Sounds

Huge range of radio programmes available on “catch-up”, plus podcasts and a great selection of audiobooks. Access via the BBC website or the BBC sounds App.

BBC I-Player

Free streaming of TV programmes and films broadcast by the BBC


An almost limitless resource of films, programmes and “visual” podcasts on almost any subject you might think of. Try searching for you favourite subjects and then “subscribe” to the channels that most interest you. Lots of content is effectively audio-only, so for the visually impaired it has a lot to offer.
