BBC Radio 1 regularly releases six podcasts.[1] The selection has grown over time, originally forming part of the BBC's podcast trial. In November 2005, short clips (typically 30 seconds) of commercially available music began to be used within some shows, after the BBC negotiated a deal with rights holders.
