Wow, this is excellent!  Id kind of forgotten the BBC maybe pigeon holing
them in my head as a kind of silo, good point!  I apologize if I over
stated the case on this point.

Thanks alot for the pointer.  This is exactly the kind of project I wanted
to be made aware of.  This leads me to the question of how can I be more up
to date with work like this?

I follow mailing lists, use IRC, talk to sem web people, read planet rdf.
I dont attend conferences but often will read the web sites.  So maybe this
is just me, but could more be done to make the work that's going on more
visible, I wonder?

Or better still is there some app that can be used to demonstrate how this
can be useful, giving an 'ah ha' (or magic) moment.

What I'd love to see in semantic multi media is a whole bunch of media
indexed in a graph like structure (perhaps per license type) inclusive of
audio, video and image.  So that users can easily organize their own media
and search for other people's media (friends and public) via some kind of
taxonomy, reverse index (search), follow your nose, or recommender engine.
