<http://purl.org/NET/mediatypes/text/html> or

dct:license ? <URI of licence declaration>  License for the transcript, which may or may not differ from that of the video


When the page is requested with the appropriate content type (e.g. text/plain), the content of BL_Global_Page_VideoClip:Transcript is returned as plain text. My recommendation would not be to include the full transcript in the #transcript resource, as this is actually a description of the transcript, rather than the transcript itself.

Most of the comments for Article apply here, too (e.g. need for separate relationship terms, need for a licence on the video).

The Acropolis Book has some specific information about marking up videos which should be useful: https://bbcarchdev.github.io/inside-acropolis/#av. If you can add a video link to the Sample Value column, I could mock up some RDF for you which adheres to our guidelines.
