A wide range of BBC programmes including comedy, documentary, drama and some sport from all BBC TV channels are available to download or stream via BBC iPlayer and can now be searched for via blinkx.com.
blinkx will index all BBC iPlayer content to make it searchable for blinkx users and allow them to preview the clip before being directed to iPlayer.
