I'm Yasser Rashid, Senior Creative Director responsible for the user experience and design team who work across Radio, Music, TV and iPlayer. Last week the new Radio 1 and 1Xtra homepages launched as beta, completely reinventing how we think, design and interact with a radio station online. What you see on the beta websites with a BBC iD right now is a dynamic, real time Radio 1 and 1Xtra
It's an interactive channel that enables the audience to see the output of both stations (by using the station switcher) including music, SMS, tweets, photo's, video and messages from the presenters themselves.
Although it's usually driven automatically by live feeds of data coming out of the studios, the editorial team are able to manipulate the live stream. When something interesting, e.g. the presenter chatting to a guest, the panel can switch to live video.
