Superb 10 minute documentary

The BBC screened a superb documentary last night (8 Feb 2008) called "Norfolk Rhapsody" and it is available to view for the next 7 days on line at

This should inspire most people with a video camera

I wasn't aware that there would be a viewing limitation only for the UK - sorry about that.

Thanks!

A stunning 10 minutes! - so much creative camerawork and excellent editing of a location I know and love well. Thanks for the link - this ones being downloaded and will be studied in some depth in a hope that one day I could do something as good as this.

Andy, how do you download a Flash video file? I didn't think it was possible.

Actually it's WMV. You just install the BBCi player (takes less than a minute, assuming you live in the UK as noted above) and then you download it. This 100MB 10 minute programme took about 20 minutes to download on my 8MBs ADSL (it's rarely that on a Saturday night!)

You then, as you know, have 7 days of unlimited watching of the downloaded file (from the 1st play) and it will last a maximum of 30 days. The WMV file then self destructs....DRM at work.

I'm copy and pasting a windows text from BBCi info page so others can see more details below - or they can just go to your link and go from there (assuming UK based as I guess non-UK IP addresses are automatically denied access.)

...........................
Downloading a programme means that the whole programme is sent as a .wmv file to your computer. This programme file will be stored on your computer for up to 30 days. You then have up to seven days from when you start watching the programme to when it will expire.

You can manage all your downloaded programme files through the BBC iPlayer Download Manager, which you can access by clicking on My Downloads.

Please note that you cannot watch a programme until all of it has downloaded to your computer

Only computers with Windows XP or Vista operating systems can download programmes. This is due to the digital rights management and sharing technology we use. Further details on system requirements are here, and the reason for these requirements is here.

Tjanks Andy, I should have looked at the bottom of the screen where I can find the Download manager.

I think I need some sleep.

For everyone outside the UK - get SocksCap (a free Socks Proxy tool) and find a Socks Proxy in the UK. I'm at work right now and can't try, but I am absolutely positive it works (have done that before on restricted American sites)
