This is perhaps the coolest news since…um…well…since ever! According to Greg Dyke, the director general of the BBC, the BBC archive will be open to the public.
I am not joking.
Soon (and I realize that soon is a relative term), you will be able to download everything from Absolutely Fabulous to the Vicar of Dubley. Just think of it. And stop drooling. All the Black Adder, Doctor Who, Fawlty Towers, Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Red Dwarf, Father Ted, Monty Python, Thin Blue Line, and Young Ones your cable modem and DVD burner can handle.
I have to lie down…
