Building the Radio 1 and 1Xtra Home Pages

Posted By James on Sep 20 2011 09:46 PM
A new post from the BBC's Internet Blog details how they "re-invented" the Radio 1 and 1Xtra homepages following three principles: "They need to be as live as radio, content should be immediately and easily accessible and they should cater to your personal tastes."

As a result, the new websites have a "live feed that let's us visualize what's happening on-air, as it happens" and recommend new content to users based on their preferences.

"The site is built with the next generation of web-browsers in mind...and it feels much more like an app than a website." You can read more from the BBC's blog here.

You can try out the new homepages here:

For now, you’ll need to get a BBC iD to access them.
