In my case firefox has a player installed for wmv files and starts to 
play this stream in the browser.  All I see is the tail end of a bbc 
weather forcast.  Just the bbc weather logo and about 5 seconds of 
sound.  Then nothing.

wget doesn't get much.

Can anyone up the ante with a better URL or an alternate method to 
view/download Click?  (ubuntu 7.04 FF)
