These were not my caps but downloaded from another torrent site.
There were a few issues with these files which are now fixed.

Most still had the announcer at the start: "Next on radio 4", yadda, yadda: Now removed.
All were over modulated IMHO and I've lowered the levels.
A few had the intro theme partly missing. I've edited in the full intro.
A few had the ending theme missing. I've edited in the full ending.
