BBC Launches Democracy

We frequently criticise the BBC on this blog, but it's also worth noting that they do some brilliant work. The iPlayer is, after a couple of poor iterations, an excellent service. Now the Corporation brings us all those boring politicians droning on for hours about things that affect our everyday live on Democracy Live. The only criticism is that it seems to only have a cursory relationship to the existing BBC Parliament channel on iPlayer: the relationship between web content (lean forward) and video content (lean back) continues to be a challenge for most broadcasters.
