HLS is just a delivery protocol (turns over page :))

which is referenced earlier, I believe.

BBC Radio 3 ran trial transmissions in flac for a couple of Prom seasons

HI Aidan, welcome t'Wam :P

For UK based listeners

BBC Podcasts are mostly mp3 (I have not found any flac).

This explains a little about the process

Stick with "iPlayer Radio", as, at the moment, "Sounds" is not fully functional.(It's a complete mess IMO, and far too white)

Agreed, Sounds is a complete dog of an app.  It seems to be an attempt all of the BBC Radio channels in to a single interface and it has no Chromecast support.  It also only supports new versions of iOS so anyone using an old iPad just as a radio will find this to be obsolete when the BBC makes the change.

The old app is far preferable. Sounds is pretty but form and function don’t aligne in this case.
