Re: "back catalogue of programs"

Netflix would have paid handsomely for the material they licenced from the BBC back catalogue. However, that revenue stream goes into BBC Worldwide, and not Aunty Beeb, hence we still have to pay a licence fee.

It could be interesting to see how the numbers stacked up if income from selling shows overseas was used to offset not having a licence fee.
