The BBC's iPlayer is going global today, at least in 11 countries as an iPhone app, according to a report in today's Guardian newspaper. 

The successful digital consumption platform had been restricted to users in the U.K.

In November, at the Monaco Media Forum, we spoke with Daniel Heaf, the BBC's Worldwide Digital Director about the success of the iPlayer and the expectation of the BBC to launch it globally.

We have republished that video today.
