Our widget was awarded 2nd place winner in the BBC Backstage Widget Competition in November 2006.
This widget is no longer available. In 2011, the BBC disabled their backstage data feeds, so no content will be shown. We hope the users of this widget have found it useful over the last 5 years.
This widget was born out of frustration by our founder with travel delays in the UK. Developed for Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger Dashboard, this widget uses data supplied from backstage.bbc.co.uk and allows you to see the travel problems in either your region or by your mode of transport. The list you see is sorted by severity and can be filtered, so the most important travel news for you is at the top. To see more information on an item, just click it.
Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger is required. If you're using Safari, click the download link. When the widget download is complete, Show Dashboard, click the Plus sign to display the Widget Bar and click the widget's icon in the Widget Bar to open it. If you're using a browser other than Safari, click the download link. When the widget download is complete, unarchive it and place it in /Library/Widgets/ in your home folder.
