* - Episode 1 was scheduled to be broadcast on 11th January 2013, but it wasn't (they broadcast an incorrect pre-recorded continuity announcement saying it was the end of term followed by silence, and then Radio 4 returned, mid-sentence, to re-broadcasting the World Service), nor was it initially released on the BBC iPlayer. However Episode 1 was still released as a podcast in 2013 and made available for streaming on the School Radio website, and the broadcasts picked up the following week with Episode 2. Episode 1 was broadcast when the series was repeated in 2015.
