"Wouldn't it be interesting to know what broadcasters here think about
the recording of internet streams?"

You are allowed to record material off TV and I suppose radio too for
the purposes of timeshifting which is specifically provided for in UK
law.  This is why the BBC iPlayer service will let you download material
but only have access to it for seven days, the built in DRM ensures
compliance.  Podcasts would also be regarded as timeshifting I think,
but of course there is no DRM on those and therefore nothing to stop you
keeping them.

You cannot (at least technically by law) posess or store a copyrighted
work beyond any provision provided by the copyright holder, although of
course people do.  To be honest I don't think any broadcaster
(irespective of above statements) would be interested in going after
somebody who say amassed a large collected on Radio 4 90 minute plays
for their own personal consumption and enjoyment.  Where you would
certainly fairly and squarely fall fowel of the law would be to
distribute, lend or trade in those copyrighted works.
