Happy Christmas (Replay Is Over?)

When you consider the history of (British broadcaster) Channel 4's Alternative Christmas Message, there seem to have been some rather good ones. I did blog posts on the ones by Katie Piper and Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

So now what I want to know is: why is it that when you go to Channel 4's 4OD site, the only one you can watch as a replay is the Ahmadinejad one? The Katie Piper one is more recent and had more viewers. If you Google up the Episode Guide for the programme, there is an entry for the Katie Piper one but you can't watch it.

Something funny going on here. OK, Ahmadinejad's message was a good one, but why is it the only one still available? What's wrong with Marge Simpson FFS?

Having trouble getting it to play down my S-L-O-W dial-up link, but this (on Katie Piper's own site) seems to be the video of her 2009 message. So where has C4's copy gone>
