Is this show available as a podcast through iTunes or somewhere else (legally)? Or is it region-locked?

Well, it'll be available as a podcast from the Radio 4 site, and on listen again, but as I'm in the UK I don't know if the BBC site is region locked - I guess someone outside the UK will have to check! Just follow the link and see if it'll let you hear the past editions to find out.

I've just tried another episode; it's not region-locked. Generally speaking, I've noticed that while video content on BBC websites is locked, radio stuff isn't.

Another radio heads-up I've just spotted in Radio Times: the guests on tomorrow's Graham Norton show on Radio 2 (that's Saturday 6th April, 10am to 1pm) are Suranne Jones, Fraser Hines and Carole Ann Ford.

I listened to this tonight, it didn't have an interesting revelations but was nice to hear the round table chat and they even managed a snippet from Matt Smith.

Are there no surviving archive interviews with Hartnell?

Possibly not. He was on Desert Island Discs (the series that alternates with The Reunion in six week batches), but that doesn't survive, and I think it might have been before his time on Who anyway.

That's a real shame, it's one thing to hear his relatives talk about him but there's nothing like getting the actors personal memories direct.

Did a quick bit of checking, and Hartnell's Desert Island Discs edition of Desert Island Discs was August 65, so he'll definitely have talked about Who. Jon Pertwee was the guest in October 64 (when he almost certainly didn't mention Who), and Ron Grainer on 25th November 1963, when I guess he might just have mentioned his most recent piece of work...
And, in related news, there was a news oddment yesterday that 67 missing episodes of DiD had been found. Don't get too excited, as the series has been running since 1942 and I think the archive is only complete since 1992, so there's a lot missing, but there's an outside chance that the Hartnell edition might be one of them (can't find a link that says what has been found).

I'll keep my fingers crossed because I would love to hear that.
