BBC Radio 4 on Drafting Legislation

The BBC is currently offering its program, “The Draftsman’s Contract,” online. It’s an examination in two parts of “the people who actually write our country’s legislation…” The first part, 15 minutes in length, is available now and for the next 6 days — after which it disappears, I suppose. The second part will be broadcast on December 17 at 20:45, and will presumably be similarly available for a number of days afterwards as streaming audio.

The BBC uses its own iPlayer format, which contains DRM restrictions, and has been the object of much criticism.

Comments

  1. The BBC uses it’s own iPlayer format, which contains DRM restrictions, and has been the object of much criticism.

    And, it be fair to add, of much praise. iPlayer is the most popular application for onliune catch-up television viewing in the world.

  2. Serge, I had thought that BBC only lets UK residents watch its TV programs (using iPlayer). Radio, I know, is a different story.
