BBC peek into the dark side

Well, here is a story.

The BBC and Microsoft have signed a memorandum of understanding to look at areas of common interest as they develop the next generation of digital broadcasting.

"We are currently witnessing unprecedented rates of change in technology and audience expectations," said Mark Thompson, BBC director-general.

"To ensure that the BBC is able to embrace the creative challenges of the digital future, we need to forge strategic partnerships with technology companies and distributors for the benefit of licence payers."
