Have you ever tried to complain to the BBC on website? They appear most welcome in receiving complaints!! Have you you ever tried to make a complaint and they continue to give you the links you don't want?

OK! My complaint is that British expats need to to keep in touch with being happen to residing at the time, and it should be none of their business, if they choose to use freedom of the website. If they are not interested, then may I suggest they get out out of the freedom of a website. May I remind the BBC of which they are trying to block for those outside the country, can be found elsewhere? So why bother blocking those brits who happen to be happen where they are, and besides , it is none of your business. Stop inspecting personal web addresses, as this should be illegal. This is due to the fact that most internet expect to have privacy, individuals on the internet like their privacy of search. Do you understand? Leave them alone!!

There is also this question of those of who do not use English as their first language, of who want to use full resources of the BBC, and not the limited version offered to their country. Stop the blocking BBC. As this goverment promotes that the English language should be encouraged throughout the world, and not blocked. Stop this territorial blocking now, and do something for your country!!!

Residents of the UK who want to watch TV have to buy a TV licence, which costs £145 per year. This money is used to fund the BBC (which has no advertising revenue).
No one outside the UK contributes to the BBC's funding.

The BBC's TV tax is immoral. The money is used to promote political agendas that a good 50% of TV owners don't want to support.
Check this out:

Join this campaign today and let the Government know you will not tolerate their blatant use of our money to publish and broadcast their propaganda, lies and corruption.

Treason has been committed and is still being perpetrated on a daily basis, and you by paying this tax are allowing this to happen.

Join us at The Peoples United Community and say no to the TV Licence Fee and no to Treason!

John Harris - My lettter to the HM Attorney-General asking them to prosecute me for openly telling people to ( in their words ) break the law by telling them to not pay their Licence Fee

Please let us know if you are refusing to pay HERE, so we can compile a list of support of non- payment.

THE EVIDENCE IS NOW PRESENTED TO SCOTLAND YARD FOR IMMEDIATE INVESTIGATION!

NOW THAT THE NEW INCREASE in the BBC Licence Fee has been approved by the Very Dodgy Dimwits of Westminster, it is now revealed that the BBC has been receiving tens of millions of pounds every year from the Sinister Dictators of Europe - without the knowledge of the British Public!

DEPUTY ASSISTANT POLICE COMMISSIONER John Yates, Director of Intelligence at Scotland Yard has been asked to investigate the BBC’s sources and applications of money, excluding the Licence Fee, and evidence linking the BBC to the European Dictators has been provided in support of the allegation that the BBC has ‘sold-out’ to Shady Politicians.

THUS FAR, THE INVESTIGATION into the Financial & Political Mischief that is clearly affecting the independence of the BBC has been conducted by Mr Ashley Mote, MEP, who is independent of all political parties and a keen supporter of British Independence from Europe. It is the records of Mr Mote that have now been delivered to Scotland Yard for Urgent Police Action at Senior Levels.

THE BBC IS REGULATED by a Royal Charter which specifically requires the BBC to keep clear of all political bias of any kind, and the records of Mr Mote show that the BBC has received vast sums of money from agencies of the European Union in return for BBC support of this Union: This Contract of Evil is contrary to both the Spirit & the Letter of the BBC Charter, which has the force of law.

ALL HONEST PEOPLE WILL WELCOME the news that Scotland Yard is now being required to investigate the finances of the BBC. We can report that the BBC has already commissioned an internal enquiry into the pro-EU Policy that has been running for years, and the very existence of this internal enquiry serves to confirm that something is badly wrong with the management and reporting operations of the BBC.

IT IS SIGNIFICANT THAT HUNDREDS OF PEOPLE are already refusing to pay for BBC Licences because of BBC bias, and where the accusation of bias – most properly described as Corruption - has been openly stated by the relevant members of the public, the Licensing Authority has declined to pursue the issue of Non-Payment!

NOW IS THE RIGHT TIME for All Licence-Holders to Stop Paying for A Corrupted Institution that has seen fit to Sell Itself to Sinister People?

THE WEIGHT OF PUBLIC OPINION must be brought to bear on the Criminals who have been manipulating the BBC and who may well be the causes of failure in all of the other public services that are now falling into the dust: All Public Services, including the BBC, are the property of the British People – and it is for the British People to make sure that these services operate effectively & clean of corruption!
Do you want to stop paying now? Then follow these easy steps and stop paying for corruption, treason and the mismanagement of your money.

I have to say I do not miss British television (television? what's the point?) but I find BBC radio superb. I find it almost surreal and rather magical that I am able to listen to, say, radio 3 or radio 4 on the computer in real time as if I was in Britain. And most programmes are kept available online for a week or so.

OK, it goes like this.

There's this thing called copyright. It also affects broadcast rights.

For example, the BBC has the broadcast rights to screen highlights of Premier League football matches in the UK on Saturday evenings. It also has the right to screen some of this material online IN THE UK.

However, in Russia the rights to Premier League were purchased by NTV. Therefore if the BBC makes this footage available in Russia it breaches NTV's copyright on the material which is against the law. So they block certain material on their site from IP addresses where it shouldn't be shown.

Question - which government is promoting the English as a tool of international communication? The Russian one? I think not :lol:

The point is that both Gordon Brown, American leaders and the current Conservative leaders believe in promoting the English language further as the first second language. They all agreed including top leaders from the USA.

SO! What better company is there than the BBC to promote the English language!! The BBC has already been the leader of promoting the leader of promoting the language. NOW to start this nonsence of blocking some of their programmes to those only in England is absolutely ridiculous. Especially when they can watch such programmes by simply googling and finding the programmes within 24 hours after it is shown in UK. So why bother with the blocking!!! And I said The BBC has a job to do, and that is to promote the culture of Britain and the English language throughout the world. And they won't do this by upsetting English speaking speaking through blocking there entertainment, or those wishing to enjoy English speaking entertainment of throughout the world who don't know English as a first language.

I repeat! Both British and American Governments desire movement to promote The English language. So I say DON'T BLOCK and give complete freedom to the internet. Anyone checking individuals private addresses should be made illegal. As it destroys the intrnets belief of internet freedom.

Good question. Is there anyway to block anyone's IP address. As this should be allowed , and would be popular to most of us on the internet. We need privacy, and we need freedom. Something has gone wrong in the past few years, and it has to be changed.

OK you guys n gals wanna watch BBC on their website, right? but you cant because you see your IP address is outside the UK. Copyright says only UK residents can view BBC on their website using the BBC viewer facility.
PROBLEM SOLVED!
Use this link. This is a proxy server for the UK. What does this mean? It means that you can "disguise" your Russian IP address by using a UK IP address under the guise of a proxy. In plain English: when using this proxy server the BBC website will think you are in the UK
OK, here it is. I think you have to contact the guy and pay a very nominal fee of 3 euro a month or something.

it has NOTHING to do either with your web address or any type of political meandering. It is to do with copyright, plain and simple. And it is your IP ADDRESS that the BBC ewebsite sees as being outside the UK. Only UK residents may view BBC website transmaissions due to copyright laws. You can get around this.

Of course you can get around this, and that is what makes the BBC website most annoyoying. Of course you can watch anything from the BBC within the next 24 hours. The only difficulty I have had is watching live action sport live in English. Of course you can watch it live in Russian here, if it is popular in Russia, such as Russia.

But being able to watch popular english tv that has been watched previously
by Americans or British people the day before is very easy. And may I thank all the uploader of who make the effort to upload this entertainment for us expats and foriegners who want to view tv and films in the English. As you are doing a great job, and you are much appreciated. I must admit that it is normally not worth watching 2010 movies as they are likely to be of poor quality. When they get a bit older they are worth watching, but this is normally due to an upload of a DVD, of which happens later. But it is the top popular tv programmes and movies from telivision that has good quality viewing.

Even so, some movies are reasonable and watchable at the moment. Such as training a dragon, and recently Avater of 2009.

So to summarise, why do the BBC bother blocking , when we can watch the same and more by simply googling. And shouldn't the BBC be promoting their goverments by promoting English speaking culture and language, and also not upsetting their British of whom are al over the world. Isn't the desire of the USA and Britain to further promote the English language and culture to the rest of the world. All I can see is that they are going the wrong way about. Damn Copywrights, and go for the promotion of the English language and its culture. Otherwise the BBC will soon be dead, due to a now hung Conservative goverment. We no longer have a Socialist Labour government.

Bels, the BBC has a whole site dedicated to teaching/learning English.

BTW You can't go into a supermarket and take some veg and walk out with the excuse 'but you have so many and it's good for my health'' just as you can't expect to watch programmes that are financed by someone else and are their 'intellectual property'. It's naive at best.

Maybe so. But if you read the website you find a strong condemnation to the interferance of freedom of using the web. Much bigger than what the BBC or any other uses. And the arguments are much stronger on the other side. What is the harm in being more open. For example BBC programmes throughout the world are poorly translated into the countries own language, and that is not what some of us want, we want the original English language.

About children, Yes my son is English and Russian, and enjoys the services of the BBC, he loves for example Dora the Explorer etc. However go to video viwing or other sections of the BBC. And what do you get? Not allowed in outside UK!!!! Upstting young children who know English or are learning English as a second language. How upset will that child be, yet the BBC do such disgusting things against even children.

The point is that there is only a minority of people throughout the world who wants to watch English speaking programmes, they are either bored Native speaking expats, or someone who wants to learn the cultures and the language of English. So what's the problem.

As for 2010 movies, I wouldn't bother, as it will be of poor quality anyway. Just the English tv programmes and perhaps some older movies. But definately not 2010 movies. Movies that have moved on to DVD quality, yes Maybe.

BBC world service on radio was financed by Brits paying a license. But everyone throughout the world appreciated it, and the BBC is well known for being the one for promoting the English language and culture throughout the world. They also did a brilliant job in giving info in what really was happening in the 2nd world war, and played a strong part in giving the world hope in defeating the Germans and Japanese. Let the BBC continue in this manner and continue to give English speaking expats their news and entertainment in the English language. If the don;t , there is someone else who wil do it for them. They can't beat the internet web, so they might as well join them.

The teaching learning English as well as several other lnguages is a good service, but it is restricted. The only way they can improve their service is by not nosying into peoples IP addresses, of which I think should be made illegal.

s;693131]BBC world service on radio was financed by Brits paying a license.[/QUOTE]
no it isn't and it never was, the world service has always been financed by Her Majesty's Government via The Foreign & Commonwealth Office, in it's various forms over the last 80 odd years. No secret is made of the fact that the world service is not the free press but an arm of British Government - what the world service chooses to produce or buy in for broadcast reflects the message that the government of the day wishes to project to the world, it is subject to competitive bid, and international copyright, the fact that you are able to hear stuff for free on BBCWS reflects another fact that someone in broadcast policy has decided that that material contains the 'right' message for your particular market and went and bought the broadcast rights.

When they existed radio licence fees only ever financed the home service, and tv licences only finance BBC television and elements of Channel 4.

Of course. But I'm a journalist. And while I'm delighted to see information made available I'm keenly aware that there are costs associated with the compilation and presentation of that information. In simple terms those costs pay my rent and put food on my table.

So, broadly speaking, I'm quite protective of copyright. :)))

Yes, and that costs money. Money which is largely earned through the sale of BBC documentaries and TV drama on DVD all over the world. How many DVD stores in Moscow have a 'BBC' section of some sort? Put it on the web for free for Russian users and those sales stop, meaning less revenue and less material produced in future. Therefore the English language (and presumably British culture, since it's the BBC) gets less promotion than before. Self-defeating.


They also did a brilliant job in giving info in what really was happening in the 2nd world war, and played a strong part in giving the world hope in defeating the Germans and Japanese.

National myth-making at best. Truth is the first casualty of war, and I'm not convinced that the World Service played a significant role at Stalingrad (for sake of argument). I'm not sure it was even accessible in Stalin's USSR, though I stand to be corrected there. Even if you're correct, it doesn't make it miraculously free to produce.


The teaching learning English as well as several other lnguages is a good service, but it is restricted.

Perhaps because the BBC is a media company, not a language trainer? And since you are a language trainer, do you really want the UK government to finance a globally available scheme to teach the English language to everyone with internet access? How will you deal with that competitor? Who will pay for your services (which, in the interests of promoting the English language and culture, might be better offered for free anyway as a kind of national service)?

Be careful what you wish for. Dora the Explorer for free probably isn't worth losing your (and your family's) income.

Although I disagree with Bels, I'm not sure that's a fair analogy either. The BBC is not like a commercial shop, and its role is not to make a profit. UK terrestrial programming is funded by an enforced levy, the Licence Fee - which is a tax, since its collection is enforcible by law. This makes the BBC owned by Licence-payers.

In my own potty little world of classical music, this is a festering sore. The BBC holds the recordings of decades-worth of classical concerts - most especially those performed within the annual summer "Proms" music festival. This massive archive has been amassed from the pockets of Licence-payers over an immense period. The Beeb refuse to release these recordings - but they are quietly preparing to start issuing them for profit instead (calmly telling the musicians who performed on them that they won't get a bean out of this). Many people believe that this archive should be made available for download - for free. After all, licence-payers have *already* paid for it, and it was intended for broadcast. Broadcast via the internet is a legitimate form of broadcast. Many of the performances in this archive are like gold-dust - legendary performances, world premieres, works specially commissioned by the BBC etc - it's a crime that the Beeb is simply sitting on the archive with the intention to sell it all off for cash.

That is it! The BBC is not out to make a profit. It is there to entertain and act on behalf of the Britiish public Those are the ones who pay the licence fee,99% of the British population. About a 60 million population. Now can you see why they are so strong, plus what they make in revenue internationally. As every British citizin must pay this licence fee if they own a tv or even a radio in the UK. So on behalf of the British government, when our expats travel around to other countries, at least allow them to be entertained overseas. As probably their family homes in UK are still paying for this Licence nine times out of ten, Also as I said the majority of Russians in Russia for example are only interested in BBC programmes,when it has been translated into Russian. Only a small minority of Russians can cope with the English language, and those who do are simply wanting to get fluency in the English language, and they are trying to enjoy original English speaking BBC programmes. So all I ask is stop blocking!! Especially CBB or any form of enjoyment for children. Please don't upset our little children, by telling them it is blocked, because they don't deserve such entertainment, because they live in another country, as that is wicked

Bels, if your gripe is that you can't get all of the stuff on the BBC iPlayer here in Russia, here's a tip for you...

... Google "watch BBC tv iPlayer abroad". There's at least 3-4 companies offering the service, it will cost you about a fiver per month subscription. Basically it's a software solution that kids the iPlayer into believing your computer is located in Britain.

Personally I hate TV (of all nations), but if you want it... also handy if your UK online banking gets anxious about seeing you log-in from the Evil Empire etc...

Funny, my young students told me the same. But Perhaps I am an old fuddy duddy and I want it here, The point is that I do get it here very easily, and yes there are certain things on English tv of which I love. Especially those coming from BBC and the American HBO. We can watch what we want, so why does webs such as BBC bother insulting by blocking in the first place. Yes we can watch watch whatever we like, as from 24 hours from what an American or Brit has watched on their tv screens.

A fine example is Doctor Who. The Americans can watch The latest Doctot Who before they get it it on TV screen by clicking here: http://tvshack.cc/tv/Doctor_Who__2005_/

The internet belongs to people, and should never be controlled by any form of idiots. The internet is for the people and should be free. I knew it from the beginning , and that is the way it is now!

But the services provided on the internet cost money to create. Newspapers cost money to create, TV shows cost money to create, web forums like this one cost money to create.

If we insist that everything on the net has to be free at the point of access, who covers the costs? Who pays the salaries of web designers or the people who write the content that you are so keen to read / watch / download?

If you're willing to hand over money for a newspaper, a book, a CD or a DVD, why aren't you willing to hand over money to access the same material digitally? It's a blatant double standard.

And how is the internet free anyway? Where can I get a free computer, internet connection and electricity supply to run them? It's a "free" service which is denied to the vast majority of people on this planet (possibly the majority of people in this country) because they can't afford it. So forgive me if I don't share your earnest desire to get something for nothing.

There can always be a compromise to satisfy everyone. But searchining ones IPA address and deciding whether you should watch something or not is a terrific way to offend someone. As I said on site choses to block a programme, yet there will be another whare you can watch it, so why bother. Revenue can by all means come from popup adverts or whatever. But in the end there must be a compramise. Can you imagine inviting sites for children who might enjoy playing game, and then they might recognise a programme they know and love in The UK, but told because that because you live in Russia, that you can't watch it. I say don't worry as we wil try tvshack.cc and you can watch what you like.

As I said. If you don't live in the UK, and want to watch a british TV programme in English, the market is limited throughout the world, as the majority of people are only interested in watching them when translated into their in their own languages. So what's the big deal?
