BBC Content to be Made Available

Wired News: BBC to Open Content Floodgates The British Broadcasting Corporation's Creative Archive, one of the most ambitious free digital content projects to date, is set to launch this fall with thousands of three-minute clips of nature programming. The effort could goad other organizations to share their professionally produced content with Web users.

The project, announced last year, will make thousands of audio and video clips available to the public for noncommercial viewing, sharing and editing. It will debut with natural-history programming, including clips that focus on plants, animals and birds.

This looks very interesting. A method for teachers and students to legally use source material for presentations and research reports... but at this point only for those accessing from Great Britain...
