The MP3 download of "The Tempest" is now available, and will remain so for the next week.

Actually, the 14 min./episode is playing time. iTunes is hustling them down for me. Timed an individual download (i.e., nothing downloading simultaneously except Calibre News) at a pipe speed of 2.8Mbps down, and it took ~15 seconds.

Thanks to Harry and tubemonkey, great stuff!

The "100 Objects" series is a situation where it's a heck of a lot easier to download the lot from a torrent site.

I actually use a site called "radioarchive.cc", which tracks only off-air radio recordings - no commercial stuff.

Absolutely...Rory receives pummeling from Amy and dies at least once during the play. I'm having trouble recalling the part of a resurrected love-stricken yet murderous Roman Centurion/Auton in "The Tempest." It would certainly make it more exciting...

Twelfth Night - BBC Radio 3
[EDIT: See a couple of posts below for a link that does not require signup or login with 4shared. Thanks for the alert, ApK.]

A downloadable mp3 version of the Twelfth Night is here, recorded from the stream (with added gain and tags).

I believe you need to be sure to click on the correct Download button; then it makes you wait for the real Download button (I can't see exactly how it behaves, because it lets me bypass the wait because it's my own file).

A different link to Twelfth Night, without the need for signup.

(4shared didn't used to have that policy, at least it didn't 6 months ago.)
