    Well, evaluating this list.

    Whilst you may think that tv-l.org.uk has no immediate value,

    UKOV tv-l.org.uk shows no results
    tv-l.org shows no results
    but tv-l does have ov, Phew!

    Looking more closely . . . . . etc etc,

    (I'd have a hard time putting too much value on the list, though there are few ones of some interest.)

    And strangely, I would consider names like:
    bbcarchive.co.uk
    bbcarchives.co.uk

    to be much more valuable

    yet they are available at reg fee.

    More to the point, who is Violeta Kulvietiene (ggogle.co.uk)? His 'researcher'?

    i think the actual article is making something out of nothing = to moan about a corporation of that size having a domain portfolio of about 200 names is ridiculous I would imagine they waste far more money on things like recycling and politically correct toilet roll :D

    From memory I think the Beeb has over 5,000 domain name registrations. Such a large portfolio in fact that they felt the need to contract out the management to a more competent outfit. Last year I think.

    I did a quick search for bbcpersian.co.uk and see it is registered to Mrs Jello in
    Hong Kong. Strange I thought on all others they are listed as being in New Jersey ,USA ???.
