Well it seems that another department in the BBC needs to update their Flash detection scripts. I’m not going to highlight every instance of failing Flash detection scripts around the global but as I had already posted about BBC Radio 1’s Flash Player 10 issues I thought I’d mention this in the hope that it gets resolved sooner rather than later.
I’m not going to dwell on the fact it says Macromedia as well. I would assume this is an easy fix as all of the BBCs content is served via a CMS so under that assumption if it is changed / updated in one script it should propagate through the entire site – although I have been to quite a few other pages on the BBC site and viewed Flash content so it may not be as simple as one would think.
For those interested here is the actual page on the BBC site: BBC News Magazine – How smart are you?
I’ve mailed a few people I know at the BBC so hopefully those that need to know will get on the case shortly. I’ll update this post as I hear more.
