Every year I look forward to BBC Radio's Christmas music specials (especially choral concerts), including the Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols on Christmas Eve. In 2005 the Beeb broadcast a concert called 'Carols by Candlelight' by the Chapter House Choir that was delightful.
And so every year, I scan the schedules of the various BBC Radio services to see what I can find, but I invariably miss something or other (I'm in the US, btw).
For all you radioheads in the UK: is there an all-in-one place to go that has a complete list of that kind of thing?

What can two thirty year old dudes do for a few days? We are in Dorset in the UK and have access to cash and a car. Camping will probably be involved, but where shall we go? And what shall we do? Outdoor pursuits and drinking of real ale and cider sound good, any suggestions?

I'm applying for a UK working holiday visa. I'm Australian. The rules on the britaus
website state that I must
be in the UK within three months of my application. The website also says I should
apply in my own country. Hm. I was planning on travelling for around 5 months BEFORE landing in the UK. [more inside]

So, I've agreed to drive a group of people to Longleat Safari Park
this weekend. It's been in the diary for months, but the weather forecast
is not good.
If you've been to Longleat before - is the bad weather going to spoil the trip? should we reschedule?

I am looking to go away for a long weekend with friends and hire a cottage. We want to go to somewhere coastal ideally and find a village to stay in that has a some pubs and places to eat. We have been to Robin Hoods Bay in North Yorkshire a few times and are looking for somewhere quaint and pretty like that where you can have a few walks on the beach and a few pints. Any ideas for anywhere good? Any recommendations for cottages would also be appreciated. Cheers.
