But iPlayer is only the beginning of the story. Because when that iPlayer moment is over, the programme disappears and we are still having to apologise to the audience. And yet those programmes do still exist and increasingly may be available elsewhere on the web...
That fact formed part of the thinking behind this - a permanent page for every episode of every programme the BBC has ever broadcast.

From a speech by Jana Bennett (Director BBC Vision) at the Banff Conference in Canada. [NB: this is part of the /programmes work blogged about here, here and here.]

...note the slightly Communist-era feel of the red and black Today page has been replaced by a bright and breezy white and blue front.

says The Guardian's Jemima Kiss in Today Has A New Website, At Last.

...it's easy to forget where the BBC's on-demand programme offer all began; with the BBC Radio Player, which is 6 years old today (or rather, it would be, if it hadn't already been rebadged iPlayer).

The BBC's Dan Taylor gets nostalgic at Fabric of Folly.

    I dream of a day when the BBC is no longer a TV broadcaster, but a huge, regularly updated bittorrent tracker, filled with high quality DRM free content, made available to the people who have paid for it's creation in whatever format best suits them.
