Thanks for your response.
I guess iPlayer is exactly what I'm looking for,
but unfortunately it is restricted to UK residents.

I did wonder if I could use my son, in Cardiff,
to re-send the stream over to me in Dublin (or Italy)?
Could I do that without using up all his bandwidth?
It would be nice if there was a way to start with a UK IP address,
and then change to a foreign one?

What application do you use to watch Channels 4 and 5?
I take it they don't come through the iPlayer?
