BBC warms up to Youtube

Ashley Highfield - BBC Director for New MediaBBC is (one of) my favorite news source. I usually tune to it in my car and sometimes I switch between CNN and BBC World Service on TV.

They’ve been putting most of their radio shows as podcasts on their site, so maybe it was only a matter of time before they decided to put video as well.

Youtube has announced (with great fanfare) its pairing with BBC. This is the good news. The bad news is only “trailers” will be uploaded to Youtube and the complete videos will stay at BBC’s site. So it will more like Apple’s movie trailer service rather than a library of BBC content.
