Do I need to be locate in UK to watch this?
The flash player starts here, but shows nothing but a spinning circle.

Why is it that national broadcast companies like BBC (and NRK here in Norway) never manage to create solutions that work on all platforms, when just about any pr0n site do?

Same here just now - but I could see it earlier in the evening. ... Ok, try open in a new tab, it works that way on IE8 at least.

The BBC is funded by the way of a license fee so I can only assume some content is inaccessible to (as Boudicca would put it); jolly foreigners who don't pay this fee.

I think we'd rather throw our televisions into the Boston harbor. ;-) Ironically, we pay federal taxes and licensing fees under the auspices of the Federal Communications Commission on just about every electronic device we buy. In return, the FCC auctions our radio spectrum to the highest commercial bidder lacking altruistic intent.

The BBC spot was cute. Good PR for clusteruk and the iMica.

AmigaNG posted this already ;)

And i'd rather be able to watch Hulu via the UK than the crap BBC shows on iPlayer trust me, you're missing sod all, least of all an annual $250 NAZI like tax just for owning a working piece of equipment capable of receiving a TV signal of any kind (including cable and satellite) whether you watch the pathetic british crap spewed from the anus of the BBC corporation or not lol

(and yes I have set up a free US based VPN tunnel to watch Hulu....so I can enjoy the Outer Limits in non crap vhsrip-o-vision doing the rounds on various torrent sites huzzah!)

Is this the bit where I say, "Thank you very much" in a tommy cooper style.

Did you also see my wonderful A1000 in the shot relaunching Amiga activity to the world.

Sad thing was LJ cut the word Aros after I said "open source version I am working with".

Oh Well Amiga back on TV.

To those having trouble, try;
right click on image -> flash settings -> local storage - set local storage to "none" - reload page. It should complain that it needs some local storage, let it. Should then work (if it was the cache giving you grief).
