Then the 'DRM' they need is only allow UK IP's to view the content; much
like they already have for some news features.

I know this can be easily worked around with a proxy server; but it's no
easier than than the DRM they are planning.

I suspect another major issue is the 'self[ish]-destruct after a fixed
time period.  The BBC can avoid this with an agreement, the users
promises to be bound with - to delete the content after x days.
