Coincidentally, 3 Burtysnky photographs are used as illustrations in Ten Billion.

Life imitating art! When I follow your link I get this message

BBC Worldwide (International Site)
We're sorry but this site is not accessible from the UK as it is part of our international service and is not funded by the licence fee. It is run commercially by BBC Worldwide, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the BBC, the profits made from it go back to BBC programme-makers to help fund great new BBC programmes. You can find out more about BBC Worldwide and its digital activities at www.bbcworldwide.com.

In other words... Just like everybody else in the world, you didn't pay for this site. So therefore you can't access it, but they can. D'oh!!

Interesting!

The article on Burtysnky's photographs is displayed with advertisements on the web page. Presumably the BBC is forbidden from displaying commercials on web pages that are shown in the UK?

I might suggest that to assume that we are more than motes in Gods eye is exhibiting egotism on a grand scale.    Wink

No; the BBC is a profit-making organisation, as well as being funded by taxation, and it elects to make its international content unavailable to those of us in the UK. Which bit of the text posted by SunnyUK was unclear?

BBC Worldwide does have a commercial presence in the UK.
