what crap is this?…since when has the bbc website (especially on a historic event as this) placed ANY ad on their site?????? Either you made up this remark or some dick photoshopped it and you ripped it off of him…..

Both the UK version and the international version of the site doesn’t place ads……

@Mr T: You’re wrong about the lack of ads — the BBC does in fact post ads *for international viewers*, though perhaps not the int’l version within the UK. As an avid Beeb reader in the USA, I noticed they began doing this some time ago. Cheers.

Mr T is correct, the BBC doesn’t advertise.

Hi Mr T and Chris,

Perhaps you need to listen before you post. The BBC do post ads but not in the UK. If you access the international version of the BBC site from UK they will check your IP and not serve ads, however if accessing from overseas they will serve ads. Only last week I was in Denmark accessing the BBC site with ads. The BBC had an article on their news pages (in the UK) saying they would be doing so quite a number of months (or year) ago. Maybe you need to be a little more polite if posting on someone’s space?
