Best radio stations/TV to improve my Italian

I have got a reasonable way through the skill tree and I thought it was time I improved my listening skills. I have used TuneIn Radio to listen to some Italian stations and I can pick up the general gist of the subject and words here and there, but it would be nice to be able to access more and build up to listening to these. Does anyone have some suggestions for the best radio stations or tv programmes to listen to that would be most accessible for an Italian learner. I have to be able to access them in the UK. I don't mind if they are cartoons even - I can watch them with my son!

Here's a start. http://www.listenlive.eu/italy.html I hope you like music. You could try RAI Italia.

The national broadcaster Rai has a live streaming, but I'm not sure if it's IP-restricted: http://www.rai.tv/dl/RaiTV/dirette/PublishingBlock-4a26f83b-8a8e-4a0f-a213-6d936ef1f48d.html?channel=Rai%20Gulp

YoYo is their children oriented channel, and Gulp their teenagers oriented one, there's also a portal for them at http://www.junior.rai.it/dl/junior/junior.htm

Yes, unfortunately RAI has an IP restriction.

Thanks for your suggestions, I can access some go the RAI TV on demand and the radio stations give me lots to choose from! Can I ask, do you simply listen and pick up words you know here and there or do you try to pause and find out exactly what is being said?
