    well done. The music at start of the segments is pretty cringe worthy though

    Kohoutek's review on Handcrafted CSS was great.

    Well done all—a lot of fun.

    I agree with Mark that the music is a little... well... hard to listen to. Maybe try some of Andrew's classics!

    Also agree that Maleika's book review was great. Well done!

    @Nuria Even though the BBC is a free service, I presume they sell content to other countries? A lot of their stuff gets aired here (In Australia) on TV, but I presume it's purchased, so I guess broadcasting it to the world would prevent them making any money out of it. Not sure, but it's one possible reason you can't watch it online.

    That may be a possible reason but... I don't think it is as they would not provide the service in UK which is, after all, their biggest market.

    Anyway, all my ranting is due to a program that I really like and they only sell the DVD for Series 1 (which I have) but that's about it... I know there were at least 7 series on TV but I can't even buy it because they were never launched on DVD Bad, BBC, bad!

    But I assume they can block other countries from accessing online material. Our version of BBC here, called ABC, broadcasts most of its shows online one they've been aired. I don't know, but I suspect only we in Australia can view that content. Otherwise it would surely breach copyright if people from abroad could view it. I don't know, though. You could try logging on to our online TV service to see if you have access:

    http://www.abc.net.au/iview/

    I doubt it's possible... especially as it requires a good broadband connection for proper streaming, which may not be possible via satellite.

    It's a great service, though, If I miss a show, I just watch it online later. (My video recorder is broken, and I don't have digital TV yet.)

    Can't. It tells me that due to copyright restrictions I'm not allowed to watch the program because I don't live in Australia.

    I'm sure it is the same with the BBC. But they do sell the DVDs worlwide... except for the program I want to buy which they only have series1

    I figured that, but always wanted to test it. Thanks for trying. Pity you can't see it, as it's quite a nice site.

    What was the show?

    Ah yes, a good series. Surprising they haven't packaged it up. I did a little online search. All I found were torrent sites offering all series, though I don't even know how to use those (or care to know--though I know someone who lives by them). Serves the BBC right that this is where it ends up, though.

    I normally don't use them but in cases like this... it is tempting I contacted the BBC a while ago and they did say that they didn't expect to release them.

    The FC is

    Thanks for all the hard work, FC team.

    I enjoyed listening to all segments and will most definitely tune in again for episode III.

    I haven't heard the audio yet (have to find me a Wi-Fi connection) but basically because in the UK you are paying a TV Licence Fee of approximately £142.50 per year to see/receive live BBC Broadcasts.

    It is the only reason there is a TV Licence fee in the UK to pay for the BBC Services including BBC radio, etc.

    Some of them will be "restricted" because outside the UK you aren't paying them for the privilege (funding the BBC) while some programmes are funded by additional "grants" and contracts, etc.

    It's non-profit basically because the Tax Payer (via Licensing fees) is the main funding source of a Public Service.

    Though most popular BBC Drama series do end-up on DVD nowadays.

    Maybe it didn't have a high enough terrestrial viewer rating. I remember watching it from years past it was fairly popular at the time. Also it depends upon the production companies involved.

    Anyway, it was a good Forumcast and I especially enjoyed the northerner; Andrew Cooper and Max interview although Andrew sounded a little nervous.

    Also liked the bit where he mentioned something like: "if Robert Wellock is listening to this" and I am glad he pronounced my surname correctly, a lot of people get tong-tied with it for some strange reason...

    Great that everyone enjoyed the second edition of the show! Certainly were a lot of good links last month for me to feature.

    PS: Nuria - as has been said before, the reason why the BBC iPlayer is open for the UK but not elsewhere is they don't serve adverts on the service and UK residents pay a license fee to keep the BBC running. Therefore we're paying for access to stuff like iPlayer (in a non-direct way). As for the DVD, had you considered sending an email to the BBC shop or something? The BBC produce all their own stuff like DVD's so they may be able to let you know on release dates or potential ones for DVDs.
