A mashup of bbc and bbc+, it gives you the bbc homepage if you don't specify anything, and if you do, the following holds true:

A better search of the BBC site.

  bbc++ topic [-tab news|sport|allbbc|www]

In English:
You can search bbc news just by typing bbc++ follwed by one or more 
words of the subject to search for.

   bbc++ tony blair
   bbc++ shuttle Discovery launch

To search for sports news, other items at the BBC, or to search the 
web, add the -tab keyword, followed by one of the following:

news - Results from BBC News
sport - Results from BBC Sport
allbbc - Results from rest of BBC
www - Results from the web

  bbc++ lee bowyer -tab news
  bbc++ charlton transfers -tab sport
  bbc++ 2012 Olympics -tab allbbc
  bbc++ 2012 Olympics -tab www

(Please disregard bbcx, something weird happened there. I hope this can eventually replace bbc. shaklev@gmail.com)
