Recover old R1 shows

Does anyone know if there is some kind of BBC archive of previous shows? Or is there a way of tricking iPlayer into playing a show that is older than 30 days? Surely they don't delete every show that goes past 30 days old, although I maybe wrong there.

Ok so I spoke to someone on the BBC iPlayer Radio team the other day, turns out when the 7/30day period is up, the system automatically deletes the files off the iPlayer system. Now he also said the production teams of the shows will keep a copy of each show, but due to licensing and rights reasons (for the music in the shows) they will never be able to be made available too listen to again... Which is a shame really.
