Wasn't it just!

A very well put together documentary.

Particularly interesting about Alan Turing's part in developing ideas of morphogenesis. I had no idea of that aspect of his research.

What kind of BS is this?
When I want to look at it it states "Not available in your area"

"Rights agreements mean that BBC iPlayer television programmes are only available to users to download or stream (Click to Play) in the UK. However, we are aware of demand for an international version.

Most radio programmes are available outside the UK in addition to podcasts, although sporting and other programmes may be subject to rights agreements."

Must be embarrassing to work there.

BBCi player is only available in the UK. It is assumed that UK internet users will have paid their license fee, which is how the BBC is funded. Those outside the UK will not have paid, so are not entitled to receive BBC programmes.

So, you can't watch it nurrr. That is, of course unless you go to You Tube. Daft, or what?

This isn't really a science question - can it, and posts like it, go into the Just Chat section in future please. Thanks.

Wrt iPlayer outside UK:

Actually, it's not so much the license fee (although that is a consideration from the perspective of fairness), it's actually a legal issue related to territories. When a piece of material is published, be it a book, radio or television programme, song or article, the contract will define specifically the territories within in which the originator grants the publisher, broadcaster, label or distributor the right to sell the work.

A programme made in Britain for the domestic market is therefore licensed for and restricted to that market. This is because the rights to other territories are valuable and can be sold separately; many BBC programmes, for instance, are sold for re-broadcast beyond Britain. But this market would be eroded if the content could already be accessed freely on demand over the Internet.

Publishing contracts now explicitly oblige authors and publishers to minimise cross-marketing / sales into non-licensed territories outside the scope of the contract.
