What's happening to iPlayer?

They seem to have started keeping some programmes available for longer, which is great. But the logic of it all escapes me. I've been catching up on ISIHAC: at the weekend they had episodes 5 and 6 available only for another 2 days, but 10 days for episode 3. However, episode 6 is still there and apparently available for another 6 days, as is 3. So why would the older episode be available for longer? And what happened to no. 4?

I think part of the problem/ confusion is that some of the comedy broadcast on R4 us given a fast replay/ rerun on R4 Extra about 2 weeks later, so when iPlayer shows which episodes are available, you get this strange set of results.

I am guessing that when you posted 5 and 6 had just been on R4 and 3, had been on R4 Extra but episode 4 had not yet been played on R4 Extra hence the situation you described.
