I've have a consistent issue with browser audio on about the last
three versions of Kubuntu and/or Ubuntu.  Typically it works in
FireFox on startup and after an hour or two stops working.  If I then
open up Chrome, it works for awhile, but eventually goes dead in
Chrome as well.  Once that happens, rebooting the system brings audio
back again - for awhile.

But since you mention listening to the BBC, why not download MP3 files
and then you don't have to listen to them through the browser.  You
can download files via this BBC page:
