Default BBC Drivel update.

I have four iPlayer accounts now, because i can never remember them when
signing up on different computers.

[quote from BBC]
We've been working to make it easier to sign in to your BBC account,
and enable you to get more out of BBC Online.

What about working to make it possible for me to continue to listen to
the radio, and watch television, without signing into anything at all,
as I've been able to do for the past sixty-odd years?

60 years ago I could watch a television program (on a television) or
listen to a radio program (on a radio) as it was broadcast. I can still
do that without signing in to anything. I know of no plans to require
it. Am I missing something?

The joys of using BBC iPlayer? :-)

I never said live transmissions through the ether were the _only_ way I
accessed the BBC's emissions. IMHO that'd be akin to sticking to the
missionary position 50-odd years after the Annus Mirabilis when sex was
invented in Britain
