Thanks for reporting. I doubt it could work. Some time ago there was a request (bug #36621) for BBC radio and I was unable to support it. Your best chance is the get_iplayer software. See the bug report I've mentioned. I'll look it up anyway during the weekend

BBC News works using lightspark 0.7.1 (the video starts playing but audio cannot be heard and it is unstable - it crashes after a few seconds). The video links can be found using UnPlug and then viewed using SMPlayer for example. It would be nice if the Linterna Mágica player would replace the lightspark one.
BBC News videos can be found here:
