Back in July 2005 I noted (elsewhere) that:
I heard some figures today from the BBC for the number of
downloads that it has recorded for some of its podcasts. The figures
came from an audio record of a BBC Radio 5 broadcast (a podcast) that
was transmitted in the first week of June 2005 and refer to the number
of individual downloads:
Reith Lectures – 50K
In Our Time – 405K Fighting Talk – 141K
In Our Time is now regularly hitting 25K downloads per month.
The BBC Press Office reports that combined download figures for all of its podcasts reached 100K a week during July. We must be due another statistics update soon.
