  • There is no TV channel BBC Knowledge, it was closed a while back. There is still a magazine though. BBC Four now has smart shows and they are going to launch an international online version of the Iplayer.

    There is a wider point here about people in dominant economies publishing on the web without taking into account that people all over the world are going to stumble on their content. Nothing more frustrating than doing desk research and finding what looks like the perfect source… only to discover after much digging that it’s actually only relevant to the US.

  • BBC Knowledge is available in Australia by subscription.
