Just that, it will be the Book at Bedtime on Radio 4 starting next Monday. Yes I know, not TV but didn't know where to post this!

Also just made a reservation for the book from the library yesterday, and it's waiting for me to collect it! Shall I read it before or after the radio adaptation?

how long do they stay on iplayer. I want to gorge on them rather than listen to one per week

ooh, just seen you can get a month free trial on amazon audible and it includes 2 free audible books so just installed the app and am now the proud owner of the whole book!

The individual episodes are on Radio 4 for 30 days from date of broadcast.

And assuming the omnibus of the Testament of Radio 4 extra is the same as the omnibus of the Handmaid's Tale on Radio 4 extra that will also be for 30 days.

I dont know about BBC downloads.

I am quite enjoying listening is short episodes. It gives you time to think through the plot and characters.

I'm enjoying the short fifteen minute episodes each day. I subscribed to it on the sounds app and listen to it when I have a short quiet space. I don't usually listen to audiobooks or much radio, could become a convert.

Here you go OP, hidden away in ‘Fun and Games’

But the radio section is mostly about The Archers 😬
