BBC Knowledge

Sep 15, 2011

This is totally sunshine and lollipops, but it has a good flow to it, and well, I totally wanted to know more about BBC Knowledge. Too bad it’s not available in my region that is America.

  • 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.

  • Interesting point about things not being available in your region…
    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.
    Even Flowing Data posts could do with a bit more geographical specificity in their headings :)

  • BBC Knowledge is available in Australia by subscription.
