What's New in Version 1.1
Sadly very poor
Badly designed, poor typography, poor quality photographs, poorly presented and sparse information, and very unintuitive to use - and an extremely bloated file size at 1.5GB, which is undeniably the worst aspect of it. Quite a let down, especially from the BBC - they can do a very great deal better than this.
