I can't say the BBC site is hard to navigate, but on the other hand the 
Accessible BBC Listen Again program does provide a very handy shortcut to links 
that are scattered around the BBC site. It's great when it works. Version 2.1 
still does.

  I must admit I have just tried the latest version of this software and while 
  it claims to be playing there is no sound.

  I think the obvious question is why this program should be necessary at all?

  Why is the BBC's site difficult to navigate.  Surely an organisation like 
  the BBC should be aware of good web design or am I still naive or suffering 
  a mid-life crisis?
