    An interesting article. I've heard of Marshal, but I didn't realize that the earlier tournaments were conducted on such a large scale.

    Thanks, Macsen, the program looks very interesting. However:
    The BBC uses Geo-IP technology to identify where you are based on the location of your internet service provider (ISP). This ensures that only internet users in the UK can enjoy programmes on BBC iPlayer.

    Rights agreements mean that BBC iPlayer is only available to users in the UK. However, BBC Worldwide is working on an international version, which we will make available as soon as possible.
    Curses! Downloading is UK only.

    Uh, is it against forum rules to ask if any of you computer whizz kids here know a way around this?* Everybody is allowed to watch the programs abroad, it's just the downloading that is currently limited to the UK.

    This is grossly unfair! The BBC is the best public broadcaster on the planet. They abound in programs that make Louis happy: costume drama, wildlife, serious documentaries. Surely, being a member state of the EU, British tax money should benefit France at all times?

    Surely we do anyway as a penance for beating you over and over again over the centuries - you know Crecy, Agincourt, Blenheim, Tralfalgar, Waterloo, Rugby World Cup 2007
