Stephen Fry and the Gutenburg Pess

Has anyone seen all of the BBC 4 programme with Stephen Fry, about a guy building a copy of the Gutenburg Press?
It must have been on four or five times now, and I just keep seeing the last five minutes - its on now again, but its nearly over.

I have seen it.

You can http://watch it on BBC iPlayer if you are in the UK

I did try the "iPlayer", just to realize that it doesn't work outside of the UK. BBC, cultural protectionism is barbarie!

I saw it on YouTube about a month ago, but it seems to have been removed.

it's not so much about "cultural protectionism" as it is about UK residents paying an annual TV licence fee.
We get iPlayer because we pay for it.

I imagine that eventually, non-UK countries will get paid access via stores like iTunes.

Well, the thing is, some day I will be able to see it. I guess it will find me...

I recorded it when the BBC2 broadcast went out... but haven't got round to watching it yet [shame].
