Are you sure about that?

Try playing one that isn't the most recent.

All the best

Hi Kerry

That's strange as I found Audio Description on past episodes using the
iPlayer.

Kind regards,

Hi Graham.


No.  Unfortunately it's the most current episode of anything that is
audio-described.  If you want to hear previous episodes you have to log in
via the silk browser and go that way.  It's a bit of a faff but it is
doable.
