Default MUST WATCH for brewers in UK

Oz and James Drink to Britain was played on Tuesday night and is Top Gear's James May and another fella touring around britain and learning all about british beer and how it's made. It's funny and very interesting and you can watch it on BBC Iplayer until some time in March 09:

BBC iPlayer - Oz and James Drink to Britain: Episode 1

Unfortunately only people connected to internet in the UK can watch content on BBC's Iplayer.

Looks like it's going to be great. Funny I can watch it on free to air tv but not on the bbc website!

Shooter: How have you been watching Top Gear that you can't watch this show?

Free? Don't you have a TV license like the UK?

I wonder if this will make it to BBC America.

that baffles me - but I suppose it comes down to the licensing or something. given top gear's profile over in the US it *might* make it onto BBC America.

in the meantime - there are ways and means to download TV from the UK but of course I couldn't condone any of that.

Yes on the tv license but that pays for RTE1&2 TV3 & TG4

not any of the BBC's but we can pick them up on satellite free to air...

Could one use a UK based proxy to view this fine program? I'm at work now so I won't know until I get home to try it.

One could check out a certain site that rhymes with vinnynova to see if it's on there.
(PM me if you don't know what I mean)
I'll be checking that out once I get home later today.

BBC America my friend, which gives us the British shows that they think we'll like. Actually, I do like a lot of the stuff on there!!! I love that show where those people eat WAY too much food and that lady comes and yells at them for eating such crap. Every time I feel guilty about those three extra slices of pizza, I just think of the piles of food on THEIR tables!!!
