    Ripping from iPlayer

    Before I start im well aware of the potential legal issues with ripping content blah blah...

    Anyway, we have a couple of pupils who have been in nina and the neurons on the BBC, the head has asked me if there is any way of getting a copy to keep long term. My first thought was ripping from iPlayer but I know its not easy.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to obtain a copy of the show either through legit means or from slightly dodgy means?

    Thanks

    If they were your students, you can request a copy directly from the BBC

    Thanks pscott, can you be more specific, like with a phone number or department?

    Give whoever it was all arranged through a ring - theyll know the right people to speak to to get a copy.

    It's much easier than you think (see screenshot below for details), although for some reason Nina and the Neurons isn't available on the iPlayer website.

    If it was broadcast a couple of years ago it won't be on iPlayer anyway- so that should get the HT off your back.

    I understand you can pay for copies if he wants to pursue that with the BBC but that should be something for his secretary and not you.
