Apologies, thought it was worth posting to check if it was viewable outside
the UK. Maybe someone will answer your piratical call...

I just tried accessing:


1. on the page you linked to, got the message "This content is not
functional right now"

2. then clicked on "download at BBC iPlayer", got "sorry, can't let you
download outside of UK"


Give it time. Anyone in the UK who wants to do an honorable piece of
piracy, please video capture and release to youtube.

Aubrey de Grey has just appeared on the BBC comedy/science show 'It's Only a
Theory', discussing his theory that the first human that will live to the
age of 1000 has already been born.


It's available to view on the BBC iPlayer for a couple more days, for people
in the UK at least (not sure about access rights for non-UK residents).


Good to see these ideas getting out into the mainstream media, but from this
show at least there still seems to be a fair amount of
schoolyard/finger-pointing type ridicule...
