    BBC4 - Seven Photographs that Changed Fashion

    For those in the UK and who can receive BBC4 (and of course interested in the topic...)
    14 Jan 2009, 21:00 on BBC Four
    "Fashion photographer Rankin recreates seven of his favourite images as he takes a journey through a brief history of the fashion photograph."

    below link to trailer showing Rankin enjoying playing with a Rolleiflex TLR
    http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00gq75c
    "A photograph is not created by a photographer. What he does is just to open a little window and capture it. The world then writes itself on the film. The act of the photographer is closer to reading than it is to writing. They are the readers of the world."
    Ferdinando Scianna, Magnum photographer

    Can't even view the clip here in Paris -- "not intended for your area". I wonder what the deal is with the BBC being so chary about letting a global audience view such programming online, or downloading radio programs (which often seem to be available for streaming for only one week)?

    Quick answer: copyright and broadcasting rights issues.

    I'll let someone else have a huge whinge and post a longer answer.

    I have read that domestic BBC content isn't available for overseas online viewing. It's likely blocked for non-UK IP addresses. The rationale is that people outside the UK haven't paid licensing fees or taxes to support development of the content, so aren't allowed to see it. I guess other pathways are allowed through payment for redistribution over satellite and cable.

    Being flippant, because you haven't paid the license fee. Being only somewhat less flippant, it's because you haven't paid the license fee and the BBC have a for-profit commercial arm - BBC Worldwide - which commercialises BBC productions by selling them to overseas broadcasters; overseas broadcasters are unlikely to pay top whack for programming which their viewers can download freely from the Internet.
    Another day goes under; a little bourbon will take the strain...

    Well, that is all true for viewing full programs on iPlayer of course, but you'd think it in their interests to let anyone view trailers - it would increase demand worldwide for that program.

    I should point out that I can't watch some online stuff that's in the US, from the UK, so it works both ways. Like I said before, it's a broadcasting rights issue and they like to sell shows on a country to country basis.

    Heather, they have developed a proxy application that allows those outside the States to watch the shows on Hulu or wherever - I wonder why something similar hasn't been created for the BBC? See here, though I can't vouch for it, never having used it myself. Ninjavideo is apparently good too.

    In any case, refer to my previous post on this subject about finding a torrent for those of you who are desperate; unlike the MPAA/RIAA, I doubt very much that the Beeb will come after you (of course, that doesn't make it any more legal).

    Thanks for the heads up, I usually miss everything I want to see on BBC4...it's the best channel by far.
