backstage.bbc.co.uk launch

Still at OpenTech, now sitting in the main session of the day – the launch of backstage.bbc.co.uk, a new initiative by the Beeb to allow and encourage developers to use BBC information and content feeds within their applicatons.

The BBC is exposing the necessary APIs, and allowing developers to retain intellectual property rights over their creations (though the BBC still holds rights over their content feeds of course). They are also making extensive use of RSS feeds to achieve this.

Have a look at the site, I think you will be very interested. It is also good to see the BBC doing something really challenging and technology-changing with the licence fee.
