Pickup the a BBC stream from outside England

I am looking to pickup a BBC media stream from their website.

I have tried VPN'ing into my server in England but it doesn't seem to want to work, my server in England can pick it up no problem, but I don't want to watch it over a terminal server session!

Anyone any idea's?

I have relatives in the UK, but I live in the USA.  The relatives alert me to BBC sites that have videos of interest.  However, I frequently cannot download them.  If I want to see them, my relatives must download in the UK and email the files to me.

You can save the stream using your enland box and FTP it back here and watch it...

Also you could install a proxy server program on your England box and put the proxy settings in your browser. Or install a VPN client on the england box, VPN to it, an do the same without proxy settings.

My second answer regarding proxy and VPN will work as a solution.

I already have a vpn setup back to England, didn't work, I setup a proxy on the same server in England and that didn't work either...

VPN should work if it's setup to send all traffic through the VPN. This is usually a setting somewhere not enabled by default. What is your VPN server and client?

I believe the setting is called "use default gateway on remote network"
Also I think you need either pptp or l2tp, but this isn't my specialty.

I have posted two links.  One says "Some clips and packages are not available outside the UK because of rights reasons. If the BBC has secured the rights to broadcast a clip only in the UK, then non-UK users will be unable to access it. "
And jackieman has suggested using a proxy server located in the UK.  
I believe my post correctly states the reason why the BBC streams cannot be seen outside the UK.  But since Cuteadder does not wish to use a proxy server, there seems no solution for Cuteadder.  
I suggest points to both jcimarron and jackieman.  And do not delete the thread.
