The BBC broadcasts a dedicated local radio programme especially for Dorset every weekday mornings from 0630 to 0900. After that, it reverts to BBC Radio Solent from Southampton. It can be found on 103.8FM. In addition, there is the Dorset Breakfast Brunch programme on Saturday mornings from 0800 to 1100, once again being followed by Radio Solent for the rest of the day.
These programmes are also on the internet - to find them on the web, click on www.bbc.co.uk/radiosolent and then scroll down for the link entitled “Breakfast in Dorset”.
And, as of June 2016, it is also on Freeview television on channel 734.
