I have a copy of that program, It was BBC "Coast" Series 2, Episode 1
Dover to Isle Of Wight.
Its right at the end of the episode. It tells the story of Prospero,
and shows a receiver connected to a small yagi, and the satellite
is audible. They use an AR8600 RX, and the displayed frequency is
137.5610 Wide FM
Don't know about sharing, the whole episode avi is 700+meg! + copyright issues.
