How long are "BBC News at Ten" programmes available on iplayer?

At the moment, none are available:

The one on Fri (22/11/2019) is not available:

Are they only available for 1 day?

I’d guess topicality limits the perceived interest.

Newsnight, 22 programmes available:

Radio 4 6 o'clock news: nearly 4,000 (!) programmes available:

Those programmes have far less viewers and yet the BBC's "flagship" news programme which has I guess millions of viewers is made unavailable almost straightaway.

Seems to be standard for most BBC News TV programmes. They all expire after a day.

Possibly also about legal liability. eg someone might sue them for showing a programme that is now inaccurate / out of date.
