When you complete a level on the version here at StH the game hangs with 'Bad program'.

It appears it's a tape to disc transfer, from the file BARBARI. That also contains "BARBARIAN 2/E 1.00" - does that point to the Electron version?
Attached is an image with the files copied from the original BBC disk, then with DATA2 saved off from the loader.
Are you playing the game on a real machine, or via emulation? Which DFS are you using? It could be related to the same glitch that prevents further levels on Clogger, amongst others, from loading correctly.

I downloaded it from StH.

I was attempting to play it in BeebEm.

Any change with the attached image, or still the crash?

Heh heh, I have to play through level 1 again now, do I? :-) It was hair-pulling enough the first time around avoiding all those gaping pits...!

I'll have a go with it later this evening with the same configuration. :-)

The following, from Zentrix's Cheat It Again Joe 4 might be of some help :)
CHAIN"BRB2CHT" to load, then insert the game disk to continue.
