BBC fixes search engine glitch

Update: Thank goodness

Got Tips?

We've just heard back from the BBC after we called this morning about some unusual results from its new "editorially independent" search engine.

One of our vulture-eyed readers spotted that if you entered "Virgin Radio" or "Classic FM" it returned BBC-related Web sites at the top of the search listings.

And that's despite the Beeb's proud boast that "Our Web search is editorially independent."

So what was up?

A spokesman for the BBC told us that the results were down to a "technical error" and had now been rectified. ®
