BBC unveils radical revamp of website

The BBC today unveiled radical plans to rebuild its website around user-generated content, including blogs and home videos, with the aim of creating a public service version of MySpace.com.

Ashley Highfield, the BBC director of new media and technology, also announced proposals to put the corporation's entire programme catalogue online for the first time from tomorrow in written archive form, as an "experimental prototype", and re-brand MyBBCPlayer as BBC iPlayer.

He said the philosophy of "share" would be at the heart of what he dubbed bbc.co.uk 2.0.
