AFAIR, the BBC's back content is officially only available to people with a paid-up British television licence. Since you can't get a British television licence unless you're in the UK, the BBC, maybe understandably, restricts access to the relevant servers to clients with an IP address that is located in the UK.
There seems to be a market for UK-based proxy servers especially to allow people from outside the UK to get at the BBC servers. Presumably using a Tor exit node inside the UK would also do the trick.
Personally I'd be happy to pay the Beeb to be allowed to access their programming from here in Germany. For all the griping the Brits do about the BBC, much of what they're broadcasting is still way better than the vile stuff we're stuck with hereabouts.
