Add BBC to your portal?

New Scientist article says that BBC is allowing "programmers to borrow and "remix" its web content for free."


And there's a contest "To encourage interest in the project, the BBC announced a competition to coincide with its launch. Running until 5 September 2005, the most promising API-utilising ideas will win the official backing of the corporation, which will help with further development."

(Remember, these are the people who have TV game shows and give away prizes like toasters.)
