Another solution, which works for us poor Brits abandoned in mainland Europe,
is to take out a VPN subscription and to pretend to be in the UK. Presumably,
if one holds a UK TV licence, this is perfectly legal?
There are plenty of sites that show you how to do this - I would be surprised if BBC was interested in shutting down a few people who take the trouble, a little bit of free chatter on the internet never hurt anyone, unless it is not nice and the last thing about this site is we are a nice as a cup of hot tea with lemon.
I listen to BBC Radio 4 all of the time, that and CNN on tune in on Alexa.
It is a superior radio station except for the weather forecasts in the morning, I can quote the locations in my head from rote.
