    I'm sorry, i don't see how that is remotely relevant. The radio service appears to have a daily audience of 5000, while the online service views are in the billions.
    Try again.
    If i had a pound for every time somebody said that.

    Bit unnecessary! 

    I'm just saying I heard it on the radio. I hadn't realised I was only one of 5000 listening to Ken Bruce in the morning!
    How to find a dentist.
    1. Get recommendations from friends/family/neighbours/etc.
    2. Once you have a short-list, VISIT the practices - dont just phone. Go on the pretext of getting a Practice Leaflet.
    3. Assess the helpfulness of the staff and the level of the facilities.
    4. Only book initial appointment when you find a place you are happy with.

    So BBC Radio only has 5,000 listeners? Wow. Who knew.

    I saw the change of date about half way down in the main news section of the BBC News website - not in the Tech bit.

    RAJAR figures for the BBC above:
    33,535,000 listeners ÷ 31 days in March = 1.08m per day. Not sure where your 5,000 came from?

    The figures rajar provide appear to be scaled up from surveys. So the actual number of people listening could actually be much lower. What was the survey number?

    Or, indeed, much higher. 
    All shall be well, and all shall be well, and all manner of things shall be well.

    Pedant alert - it's could have, not could of.

    ETA the above is for a quarter, so 
    33,535,000 ÷ 90 days = 372,600 approx.
