Popular podcast 'Serial' will be broadcast on British radio

If you haven't heard the This American Life podcast Serial, then you've probably heard people endlessly banging on about how great it is. Despite its massive popularity in the US, the first country to syndicate the real-life murder mystery show will actually be in the UK. The BBC will broadcast the first season of the series on digital radio station Radio 4 Extra, one per day, in the run up to the finale. The first show airs on Sunday December 7th at 9:00pm, presumably with the conclusion airing on December 18th. One thing to note, of course, is that given the BBC's strict policy against advertising, it's likely that the Mail... Kimp? gag that opens each installment won't survive the trip across the Atlantic.
