BBC Knowledge

Found the press release about the previously-mentioned BBC Knowledge Magazine.

Doesn't look too promising for freelancers: according to this story, the magazine "will draw on the publisher's existing portfolio of quality specialist factual titles including the award-winning popular science title Focus, BBC History Magazine and BBC Wildlife Magazine."

Why? Why do they not want original content? If this magazine is expected to appeal to National Geographic's readership--a lofty ambition--seems kind of arrogant to assume that recycled stories are the items for which intellectual Americans are starved.
