I've always been a huge fan of the BBC and this on-line resource is particularly impressive. Though there is some bias in the reporting, it pales compared to what we find in the US news sources. Pairing the two when teaching modern events is quite useful (and enlightening). In addition, for humanities instruction the interviews of writers and artists is extensive (and you don't have to wade through anything about Pitt/Jolie to find them). This site is terrific for both personal and educational use.

Technical Remarks:

You have to download real player, which depending on your system can be a pain.

BBC is one of the top media resources (audio-video)with the station's transparency in broadcasting news and legitimate analysis. Not to mention the clarity of the english language spoken in different programs. and the best sound quality!!!
