My reply is to Ric in Brissie.

Have you been able to watch or download these films?

My computer tells me that only those in the UK can view these. Try as I might I cant get past this. Just thought you might have somebody up your sleeve who can work it out, not that I am saying you can't.

Looks like the whole set of films in this archive would be very interesting.

How are you and the missus, well I hope..

Arnie, Rick,

here in Germany we get the same message, so if you find a solution please make it public.

Thanks

Bill

Hi Arnie & Bill,
The solution is to install a VPN on your computer/smartphone/tablet (I use Apple products) A VPN is a VIRTUAL PRIVATE NETWORK, this disguises your IP address so no-one knows where you are!
Because there is a TV licence in the UK the Gov is loath to make stuff available without payment so we have to be a little creative.
Once you have installed your VPN (I use Surf Easy) https://www.surfeasy.com/ You then tell your computer that you would like to be in London/New York, somewhere in Brazil or wherever they have servers, anyway choose London, then open up BBC Iplayer and choose what you want to watch, if you have an Apple TV box you can choose your BBC programme on your phone or Ipad and wirelessly send it to your tv via your home wi-fi. Good luck!

Wow, Rick, thanks for that !

I read the link that you posted, it sounds like a very interesting piece of kit, something that every child abuser and all sorts of other bandits will no doubt be using. I have often asked myself why the cops can't catch all of those evil doers on the web. Not that it would help if they were caught ... here in Germany they have just let Sebastian Edathy, an SPD politician, off for 'collecting child porn, mostly little boys under 14'. Even though it was also proven that 'he was tipped off about the enquiry' and so got rid of most of the evidence, he got away with a 5,000,- € fine, which means that the enquiry is closed and so OTHERS can not legally be persued. It also means that this perverted scumbag does not even have a criminal record ! Thinking back to that Belgian bastard Mark Dutroux and the fact that judges and lawywers were 'involved', I can't help but ask myself who was being protected by this decision, certainly not the children !

I apologise in advance for the language but is there any other way to describe such despicable behaviour ?

All of that said, I can fully understand anybody not wanting all of those blood sucking advertisers etc. knowing who you are and where you are. I am always irritated that when I look for an object, say for the garden, on the internet ... the next time I open my computer I am bombarded with adverts for that same product. More fool them because I have usually already bought the item that I was looking for, but it clearly shows that there is a trace back to me and my address.

Also, and that was the point here, we can then watch the posted film links ...

Thanks again !
