I vaguely remember reading somewhere that BBC (or some other similar TV) was airing bitcoin documentary online just recently.
Does anyone know about it and where we can watch it?

There's nothing on the BBC website about this or in the TV guide. I wonder when the first bitcoin documentary will get aired by mainstream TV though.

Maybe this doesn't sound or seem interesting to us that are already familiar with what bitcoin is, but the fact that this aired in a channel like  CNBC is great news.

The BBC's consumer tech programme, Click (formerly Click Online) apparently featured Bitcoin in an episode last year (I didn't see it, but this thread made me think of Click Online for the first time since I cancelled my TV license and stopped watching TV!): http://www.ovguide.com/tv_episode/click-season-2013-episode-23-08062013-4583511

Edit: here's the BBC iPlayer link (not sure if it'll work outside the UK Sad ): http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b02xdtd4/Click_08_06_2013/

TV channels talking about bitcoin is not something new really. RT has been doing so since early 2011. It gained more attention later so to me media attention NOW is not that special. Still nice to hear that though.

I think it depends on the channel and the programme - the BBC is major; Click Online - not so much. It's more "popular science" than the equivalent programmes on other UK channels ("win all these sponsored goodies!") but it's still pretty low-brow and unloved/unwatched, the kind of programme the BBC makes in order to justify receiving TV license fee cash...

I'm pretty sceptical about media attention anyway - but I have fairly unorthodox views on Bitcoin and mass adoption (I don't think my grandmother being able to buy her groceries with BTC is a compelling use-case for Bitcoin).

No, just saving money on bandwidth. The idea is you watch this stuff using a TV where they can make more money.
