An Internet clever-clogs has made the BBC iPlayer work on PS3 as a demonstration of how easy it would be to officially support it.

The tinkering was done as a reaction to the BBC offering its telly catch-up service on Wii last week.

All the brain-box had to do to prove the point was stir a cauldron of JavaScript mixed with user-agent strings and a dash of CSS functions.

That means you can watch all of the telly you missed by using your console web browser to go to the Unofficial BBC iPlayer for the PS3 website and following the instructions on it.
