According to an article on the BBC news website quoting the BBC's Future Media and Technology Journalism chief architect, the BBC is "currently building prototype versions of several applications such as the news ticker". The article goes on to say the news ticker would "displays headlines on a desktop". Another project is "mini Motty, which provides desktop football commentary".
The article goes on to cite the key benefits of AIR - namely it's cross platform and reuses some of the Flex/Flash skills the BBC already has used for their streaming iPlayer project.
