Slightly tangential to Gnash, but I take deep issue with someone

While someone has suggested Flash, the fact is that the BBC today uses
Real and Windows Media, and are using more and more Windows Media with
more and more DRM.

the BBC has worked on its own video format

Dirac appears totally dead.

The BBC culture is one of middle managers who are sat on a gravy train
and look at 90%+ market share of Windows and see it as a done deal.

How can Free Software and Free Culture make any impact whatsoever on a
non-web-savvy manager with that kind of attitude?
