Beeb's iPlayer dismisses radio show as 'b011ckxs'

Friday comedy url lol(lock)s

Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Fans of comedy urls are invited to raise a pint this afternoon to the Beeb's iPlayer, which is currently providing added value to Episode 7 of the 74th series of Radio 4's The News Quiz:

http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b011ckxs/The_News_Quiz_Series_74_Episode_7/

As our informant Tom Davie puts it: "What a great URL :)".

We note that the urls for other radio output available on the iPlayer include sequences such as "b011ddzc" and "b0118mql", so it was just a matter of time before something got branded a load of cobblers - in this case Sandi Toksvig and chums' weekly chuckle over the news. ®
