Through the BBC Backstage list, I've spoken to a guy who works for Siemens
before who (for some reason which I'm sure is due to Siemens being involved
with the BBC's IT) has access to archives of DVB streams; he may well have
archives of radio feeds too so I'll ask the question and see if he can come
up with anything (or knows anything else).

Now into 01:24 on the iPlayer copy of the R1 Rock Show and there's no break
in the audio, so I have a feeling the iPlayer backend encodes directly from
the BBC's internal feed, that or it's fed its dedicated own copy of each
station's audio.
