World Wide Web: 10 Best Sites of the Week

www.bbc.co.uk/movies/ stayingin.shtml

This DVD and video review site for the BBC covers, on average, 19 films every week. Updated regularly, it features film reviews ahead of many specialist magazines, so drop by if you want to know what's hot and what's not. One prime feature of this site is the "Ask Almar" section, designed to help you locate rare or hard-to-get- hold-of films.

www.eurofootball.com

What do Terry Venables, Oliver Bierhoff, Sven-Goran Eriksson and Magnus Hedman have in common? They've all invested time and money in this site. One wonders if we really need another football website on top of soccernet and football365, but we've got one regardless. Designed for the football fan who just can't get enough, eurofootball has information, news, match reports and features provided by a dedicated editorial team and sports journalists.

www.examonline.co.uk

This free-to-use site enables school children to test themselves using questions from previous years' Science SAT exams. The clever bit is that the work submitted is marked online. Designed to help children revise for National Curriculum examinations, the answers are scored using the same marking scheme teachers and examiners use.

www.sportal.co.uk

There's not much variety to this site - it only covers horse racing, football and Formula 1 - but what it does cover it reports on very well. Member log-ins allow access to the full site while the homepage is decorated with a variety of the day's big headlines. Checking the football side of the site reveals club information, details of players, fixtures, news on European club football as well as Euro 2000.

www.lawontheweb.co.uk

Billed as a legal information resource designed to make the law more accessible, it provides free legal information and is maintained by a solicitor formerly in private practice in the UK. The site was recently reviewed by BBC Radio as "one of the best online legal resource sites in the UK" and provides, among other things, legal news and basics, details on how to find a lawyer and a wealth of links intended to help ordinary people establish their rights.
