[ubuntu-uk] BBC and open formats??

I have also been badgering the BBC for quite some time to use open
formats and also about the awful bias nature of their programs (news and
'click', their technology related show) towards big business and
completely ignoring floss, however seeing how Dirac (the beebs own foray
into the free software world with their own video codec) seems to have
pretty much gone to the dumps, all I can see is our licence payers money
being spent to get Microsoft to stick drm into everything around. 

i would suggest that anyone who actually want to try and get something
happening on this front not just talk to the bbc's complaints
department, they will only answer questions, they won't change anything
about the way things are done. It might be a better idea to talk to your
local MP or some other avenue of interest.
