It's Channel 4 in England.

We won't get it here in the US.

I hear "The System" is based loosely on Dr. Wendy Woo's System 44.

Even if it's not uploaded you can go to the website http://www.channel4.com/4od/index.html and download the 4 on demand program for free. All the programs shown are free for about a week after there shown.

Alas, it is not possible for us Mac users to watch 4 on Demand (the software you need to download only plays on a Windows system Smile

Also I think that only people living in UK can watch 4oD so you would have to use a UK based proxy

Though, of course, Intel-based Macs run Windows just fine. But these shows are not available from Channel 4 in the US anyway.

However, everything is available to everyone via Bit Torrent.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't bit torrent tantamount to piracy?

Not necessarily. Bit torrent can be used to pirate, but not all uses of it are considered piracy. In terms of the Derren Brown stuff, it's a tricky thing. For an American to download one of Derren Brown's television specials can be considered okay because Channel 4 has made no attempt to make any money off of us anyway. We can't buy a DVD and we can't access their online advertisements shown during the weeklong re-airing, so I'm not sure that our downloading makes any dent in Channel 4's profits.

Nevertheless, I'm thrilled to hear that DB's got a special in the works! I'd love even more if there was another televised live show airing in the future.

It's not tricky at all. If you download a Derren Brown show you are infringing IP law.

Just because something is unavailable to you in your region, it does not follow that the rights to the program are just up for grabs.

I'm sorry I'm with Harry on this one, I downloaded phenomenom episodes from a link that someone kindly posted up here. I don't see what difference would be between downloading a TV special not avialable in your country and someone taping the show and sending it out in the post like we used to do in the older days.
just my opinion.
