  1. Currently if accessing iPlayer you have to click on the declaration "I have a TV licence" to access the service but very shortly you will need a password. However the situation seems to be different for Radio Iplayer which is a separate service. Currently no declaration is demanded to access the radio service as no licence is needed - the Radio Licence was abolished in February 1971. I suspect the present situation will still prevail after the TV service becomes passworded. No licence is needed to listen to any radio service, BBC, commercial or amateur.
  2. LBC the property programme , every Thursday at 9pm. They give advice on tenancy, Landlord, ownership and property issues.
  3. I purchased a 5 year old car on Friday- which should have had on board Sat Nav. Dealer said Sat Nav was broken, so replaced the radio with franchise CD player. However, on collecting car- now find that although the radio/CD works, there is no Bluetooth hands free, no clock, no steering wheel controls and no code supplied for replacement (bog standard cheap!) radio. The advert stated all of the above but the replacement unit is obviously incompatible with the standard spec radio which gives all the other functions. Taking car back tomorrow, but any advice on how to play this would be appreciated
  4. When my wife drove my LR discovery for MOT in a big garage chain, all lights were off on the dash before MOT. But after MOT, ABS, HDC, TC and brake system lights are on, never off, radio also is not powered on. MOT failed for ABS light. I asked them to reset all lights. They said they followed the procedure, they are not responsible. Who should I complain to? Thanks in advance Kai

  7. Posted on Facebook today :- Dear all, 'Radical Spirit Radio' will be doing a special show tonight, to talk about ATOS and the national demos today. If anybody is attending/speaking at one of the demos, and you'd like to come on and talk to us about it, please let me or Eddy know. We realise it is short notice, (I was planning on attending a protest myself today, but for one reason and another, I can’t now). Instead, we thought it was a good opportunity to get some awareness-raising done. The show will begin at 8pm, and it would be easier (although not essential) if you could take part via skype. Any help you could give us at this late stage, would be greatly appreciated. Please share this if you can, because we don't have long to put it all together. Thanks very much. Helen Sims and Eddy Wright Radical Spirit Radio If you want to take part, contact Marie Pace on the Facebook group :- https://www.facebook.com/groups/236931403038408/683852935012917/?notif_t=group_activity Lex
  8. Interesting epetition just found.Personally i am sick of seeing gambling adverts on TV. Trying to draw people in.I have never really looked at it before so just had a quick look round and it is surprising how big some of these companies are.Are more people getting addicted,i do not know,perhaps you do. Everyone in the adverts is so happy but how many are being taken in,getting into difficulties,do you know. But the sheer amount of money now being spent on TV advertising must be paying off.It is everywhere you look. Just in case anyone is interested.Only got 70 signatures . http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/45780 But so much revenue to be gained by the TV companies.And perhaps causing troubles for some. Due to what seems to be a booming industry this is why i have started this thread.Have your say. 100,000 signatures is a tall order but at least some of your views or if you have seen any newspaper articles or know anyone in trouble would be interesting.Post them here.A new area for myself,so could do with a little help. You get a feeling there is something of the night about it all. Agree or disagree,have your say.Just trying to find out.Which we will. Just what is going on . Thanks. http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/45780
  9. From the radio 4 "You And Yours" web page, http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b01jrlf1 heard this item about somebody being chased by cabot for an alleged debt that is 15 years old. Unfortunately it's not on iPlayer so quick précis, this was a credit card from capital finance that was cancelled in 1997. Due to the last payment on the card not going in on time there was a small charge but CF said don't worry the account is closed and you won't hear from us. roll on 15 yrs and enter cabot claiming about £46. (The programme also mentioned that debt purchasers might pay as little as 1% of the value) The reason for posting this is that the programme makers want to hear from anybody being chased for alleged debts older than 15 yrs. which might apply to a few on this forum. http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/features/you-and-yours/contact-us/ it's on iplayer now. http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b01jrlf1/You_and_Yours_Debt_collectors_Manchester_and_cycling_hospital_staff_telling_the_truth_free_high_street_wifi_copycat_books./
