Becky Hogge interviewed for Groklaw

Groklaw, which started as really just another blog before it's author, PJ, made it the commentary site for legal issues in the free software world and has for a while now seen it expanding the topics coverage to a wider range of digital rights topics.
Today they publish an interview between Becky Hogge, Executive Director of the Open Rights Group and Sean Daly about the BBC iPlayer. It has turned out to be a very fair and balanced discussion about the issues involved. Given that it was a transatlantic conversation there are one or two culture translation gems, this being my favourite:
Becky Hogge: ... flagship programs, like Top Gear -- do you know Top Gear?
Sean Daly: Yes, I saw a guy who like drove his car across a lake one time.
