Hi Aynard. I suggest you go onto the BBC site today and see if you can pick up programmes on the iplayer, though I assume that it is possible.

You can't get the BBC iPlayer outside of the UK due to the licence fee. It recognises your ip address as being outside the UK and so content is blocked. There is a rumour that this will change later this year.... but I'm not holding my breath.

I may be mistaken but didn't Seale Wines get taken over by a Roger Middleton. Does anyone know anymore??

Kai Seale resigned as the sole director of Seale Wines on 15th February 2010. No director was appointed in his place, so Roger Middleton (real name or alias?) appears never to have been a director. As a director Kai Seale would have been responsible for the management of the company up to the time of his resignation.
