Typical!

The members of this website are so friendly and helpful.

Did I just see a flying pig???

JASG, I apologise for the appalling levels of rudeness and insular behaviour on palinstravels.co.uk. I am sorry that no one else has tried to help you, it is clear that they are all obsessing about themselves.

I am pleased to inform you that it is possible to watch the BBC online.

Not in the U.S. It's blocked. It probably has something to do with licence fees. If anyone knows a way around this, I'd love to know.

And BBC America shows mainly the dregs of British television. Sometimes, in the middle of the night, they'll show "Black Books" or something amusing but mostly it's Benny Hill and "Footballers' Wives" (or whatever that dreadful thing is called) and shows that they have aired dozens of times before. And the BBC news is accessible at much more convenient hours on PBS.

I wish BBC America would get an intelligent programmer who would schedule things that are not available elsewhere on American tv. I'd bet that their ratings would soar.

I wish they would as well! It's not exactly cheap to get DVDs dispatched from the UK like I've been doing with Michael's series.

I can listen to BBC radio here (in Australia) but I don't think telecasts are available.

That's good news, John. But the article doesn't state whether the internet access will be available for people outside of the UK. I've been given links to specific programs before but, when I tried to access them, I'd get a notice that they weren't available outside of the UK. (I do listen to BBC radio on the internet a lot - http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio/ )

I did see one article that said it has'nt yet been decided whether the service will be available overseas. I suppose that is where the money is !
