Dan, it's the BBC ... in this all-too commercialised world, the BBC is a fairly unique, almost anachronisitc beast of broadcasting.
It raises revenue through a nationwide (UK) licence fee. (It also sells dvds etc and has other income sources ... but the licence fee is the biggie).
All households must pay a TV licence fee that goes to funding the BBC.
It's a kind of tax on watching TV.
You must pay it if you have a TV received in your house.
That means its output (apart from the World Service radio) is unavailable to anyone outside the licence fee zone.
Same goes for its online output.

It also raises money from selling the programmes to other broadcasters which would be pointless if iPlayer was a globally available resource.

You can find an 30 minute (edited by Tom) version here: http://freshonthenet.co.uk/2012/04/gigworkshop/   (I can view this video in the States.)

Complete notes on which the workshop was based are here:  http://freshonthenet.co.uk/gigs/

They've raised plenty of rev flogging all their good stuff to Oz for 40+ years. At competitive rates mind you, gotta keep the expat poms happy. The Australian Broadcasting Corp here was practically a colonial outpost. They are also  a public service broadcaster, and have to make ends meet without advertising and licence fee rev.
