Default Help, my clutch won't bleed!

Hi guys, I have been trying to bleed the hydraulic clutch on my beemer gearbox today but to no avail.

The system has had no fluid in it for quite some time, but as the bleed screw will be partially obscured by one of the drive tunnel panels, i thought i'd fill the system in advance.

The problem is that there is no fluid coming out of the bleed screw at all, and as far as i can hear, the slave cylinder isn't moving. When i filled the reservoir, a fair bit of air bubbled up through it, and more when I began bleeding it, but nothing is getting through.

What am i doing wrong?
