Is there an online copy anywhere? Apparently you couldn't actually
watch it live unless you were a Sky subscriber, which we aren't any
more ...

Worth every penny of the licence fee.)

I've got the rap down pretty well now:

* Living bios are special and we've been harsh on them for a coupla years
* Abusive rubbish and slander is *wrong* and that's not what we're here for
* out of 300k living bios, we have ~1000 locked from editing (I don't
bother explaining full vs semi-protection)
* those 1000 are locked to any editing
* with flagged revisions, we can have the good copy up for the casual
viewer but can still edit the live copy
* we're approaching it v carefully, because that instant live thing is
a real buzz and motivation - very short delay to live is important
* German Wikipedia's had this for a year on *all* articles and it's
still alive and well and dynamic
