It’s news Jacques, but not as we know it

I was looking on the BBC website this morning and saw there was a video clip of the IOC president reflecting on lessons learned in Vancouver:

“IOC president Jacques Rogge reflects on the first few days of Vancouver 2010, and gives his thoughts on what lessons London can learn ahead of the 2012 Olympics.

Available to UK users only”

I have fallen victim to the IOC media rules which mean I can’t watch “Olympic related” material by the BBC unless I am in the UK (or at least have a UK IP address, which could be spoofed using a proxy server rather easily; a method of questionable legality).

Now I can see the rationale in protecting coverage of the events themselves, but surely an interview by the top Olympic official is of sufficient importance to be made publicly available?
