BBC Radio is probably most famous in Science Fiction and Fantasy circles for its production of The Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy by Douglas Adams. But SF&F audio fans outside the U.K. will be pleased to discover that the BBC is available online through streaming media! You’ll need a RealPlayer Plug-in or a Windows Media Player Plug-in to listen. BBC Radio 7 is your best station, it broadcasts 2 hours of science fiction and fantasy every day in two time slots entitled “The 7th Dimension“. Currently being broadcast are BBC produced programs like Earthsearch, Blake’s 7 and Isaac Asimov’s Foundation Trilogy.
Other BBC Radio stations do occasional Science Fiction and Fantasy broadcasts as well. Most notably among these infrequent broadcasts would be BBC 4. Here is a link:
Finally, those who remember Doctor Who from television will be excited to learn that the BBC has started to produce some Doctor Who Audio adventures.
