The broadcast can be played by VLC media player, Media Player Classic, Windows Media Player, and MPlayer.
QuickTime Player is not recommended, since it does not display the correct colours. (This fault is very evident in the case of the composer's photograph towards the end; perhaps some one can suggest a remedy?)
