BBC radio shows
Hi Spow00; I've just nominated one of the samples you uploaded for deletion, but now I see that you've uploaded a large number. Can I ask why you believe that these recordings of a BBC radio show are licensed under a free Creative Commons license? As far as I'm aware, all BBC content is all rights reserved. If we aren't able to clear this up, all of the samples will have to be deleted. Thanks, J Milburn (talk) 12:55, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
- That all sounds very interesting, but where's the proof? Take File:Roger Scruton BBC Radio4 A Point of View 11 Aug 2013 b037vb15.flac, which I nominated for deletion. This is sourced simply to the BBC website, and there's not even a mention of this project. Where's the statement releasing the excerpt? An email? A blog post?

File:James Nesbitt BBC Radio4 Desert Island Discs 21 Dec 2008 b00g2156.flac has been listed at Commons:Deletion requests so that the community can discuss whether it should be kept or not. We would appreciate it if you could go to voice your opinion about this at its entry.
If you created this file, please note that the fact that it has been proposed for deletion does not necessarily mean that we do not value your kind contribution. It simply means that one person believes that there is some specific problem with it, such as a copyright issue.
