BBC Archive Widget for Mac OS X

The world of "widgets" comes to the BBC in the form of BBC Motion Gallery, or better known as BBC Archives. The BBC's film footage distributor brushes off any image of a low tech outfit by releasing a Dashboard Widget for Mac OS X to let potential customers to search its online film archives without a browser.

Such a widget 'expedites production workflow and we intend to take full advantage of these innovations to bring our customers better products and services," said Jan Ross, SVP at BBC Motion Gallery.

Motion Gallery also handles the content of the CBS News Archive, and has global distribution arrangements with NHK Japan and ABC Australia. [This is a great device.-Ed]
