I did point out that I am not particularly technically minded and you
may have to be somewhat detailed in giving me instructions and advice.
As I am recording from the BBC I am not trying to remove commercials but
the bit at the beginning of the recording where I started recording
early and the bit at the end where the recording overran. So, I play the
recording, press 'M', select 'Edit Recordings' from the list and then
mark the pieces at either end to be removed. It is these pieces I went
to get rid of.
