With the cooperation of the IPv6 Task Force, BBC World did a special programme about IPv6. The report is available online, including video footage of the interview which has been shown around the world.

The report mentions the possibility of IPv4 address space exhausting by 2005. While the Cluster does not believe that is likely, it should be recognised that a growing percentage of Internet users now reside behind NATs as a result of IPv4 address conservation policies, and that if a single application area such as mobile 3G handsets demanded a few hundred million IP addresses, the IPv4 address spacewould come under significant pressure.
