BBC Click has a massive viewing. It is also broadcast out on BBC World
News (syndicated worldwide). According to wikipedia BBC World News has
74 million viewers per week.
It would be absolutely awesome for the project if we could get onto BBC Click.
A short segment featuring a mapping party would fit very well with the
feel of the program.
