About the presentation
Following the release of the BBC iPlayer, UK viewers are able to download and stream television programmes on demand. Previously, such content could only be viewed as a traditionally broadcast programme or, for some at least, as illegal downloads. Anthony Rose talks about his involvement with the BBC iPlayer project including his motivation for joining the BBC, the challenges that have been overcome and the problems that lie ahead for the next generation of the BBC iPlayer.
