New frontier for BBC?

Wow. I am impressed. BBC had the download available in Ogg format?!

Backtrack. BBC is experimenting with ways to make their programs more accessible. At least that's what I gathered.

They are trying this out on a tech program.

The BBC announced the move on Thursday through its Backstage Blog. For now, the experiment is extremely limited. A single program, called R&D TV, will be released for download to anyone, regardless of whether they're located in the UK or not. So far, only one episode is done, and a second is in the works; more may be made if these prove to be reasonably popular.

It will then be released under a CC license. And put on Youtube.

I am impressed!
