The BBC is known to have strong support for Linux. When its iPlayer software was released, it did not take them long to release the Linux version. Compared to US TV networks, the BBC seems bent on using Linux in their own TV production. Their use of ingex, a suite of software applications designed to enable low-cost flexible tapeless television production, just proves that the BBC eats their own dog food, so to speak.
So next time to see an episode of the BBC's, you'll be happy to know that Linux is running behind the entire TV production. When do you think will other TV networks migrate to this same setup? I am sure that it will be somewhat cheaper, right?
