Just subscribed to the Sci/Tech feed to check it out, and it works nicely in Bloglines: clicking a headline pops you to an individual pagelet for the video – which is another subtle advance, IMHO.
One thing they could do is add the duration of the clip to the headline or description so it shows up in your RSS viewer.
Very nice stuff – I imagine this will mean a few interesting ‘mashups’ and alternative interfaces might be showing up on http://backstage.bbc.co.uk in the near future. Look forward to that…
Now, if only they were Quicktimes… or PSP formatted…
