BBC Four has just released an hour-long documentary chronicling our favourite Finnish phone-maker. The Guardian calls it "a morality tale for late-era capitalism", showing how the company that once ruled the mobile phone market lost its pioneering spirit and was undone by the likes of Apple and Samsung.

Now the bad news: at present, you cannot legally watch it outside of the UK.

Those residing within the United Kingdom can stream the documentary using BBC's iPlayer—the listing for the program can be found right here. Unfortunately for the rest of us, iPlayer seems to be VPN-proof, as their support page confirms:

If we detect that you might be using a VPN, you'll be unable to play programmes. This is because we need to be confident you're in the UK, and if you're using a VPN or proxy, we can't detect reliably where you are.
For the die-hard Nokia fan this leaves BitTorrent as your only other option. And while the advertisers that keep these forums up and running probably wouldn't be too happy with links to infringing content, I can say with some confidence that said infringing content is out there, if you know where to look.

Just remember to fire up your VPN before downloading, so that the BBC doesn't come after you.
