    My guess is that it's because the website is using flash, and android 4.1 doesn't support that (actually iPhones don't support flash either IIRC, but the site probably does something different if it detects an iPhone).

    So I can suggest 2 solutions:

    1) install flashplayer and use a flash-compatible browser. You can find some instructions here: [GUIDE] [HOW-TO] Install Adobe Flash Player on Android 4.1 Jelly Bean/ Android 4.4 - xda-developers

    2) install the iPlayer Radio app from the Play Store and use that rather than the website.

    Good luck :)
