Doctor Who will be among the programmes to be made available on demand via the BBC's iPlayer service, it was announced today.

A story on BBC News says the service will be launched later this year.

People will be able to watch selected shows online for seven days after their first broadcast. Episodes will also be able to be downloaded and stored for up to 30 days.

The iPlayer has been given the go-ahead by the BBC Trust after consultations with the public.

Initially, the iPlayer application will only be available to people with Windows PCs. But the trust wants the application to run on different systems within "a reasonable time frame".

It is unclear at present whether access will be limited to UK users.
