Kate Russell gives us her latest selection of the best sites on the World Wide Web.

Virtual Replay

The BBC is not responsible for the content of external internet sites.

If you are a footy fan you are going to love our first site today. Virtual Replay puts you in control of the cameras during the highlights of the English FA cup, so you can watch the players' moves again and again, from every possible angle.

Let us face it, football fans are often fanatical, and at this site you can get your fill of FA action replays, virtually speaking. You will need the latest Shockwave player installed, then just use the links in the main panel to choose a game.

Next the player must load the sequence, and you will have to be patient if your connection is not that fast.

The next screen offers your Shockwave controls, which are all pretty self explanatory. As well as switching to every conceivable camera angle, you can also concentrate on the actions of individual players from either team.

Just hit the play button again to repeat the action and view it from an entirely different perspective.


The BBC is not responsible for the content of external internet sites.

The next site was sent in by Ian, who is one of a rapidly growing number of citizens of a new virtual country call Lovely. Confused? You will be.

Governed over by the regal and magnanimous King Danny I, the creation of Lovely is actually a rather clever social experiment where people from all over the world are invited to sign up and participate in the collective silliness of forming a brand new country on the internet.

Believe it or not there are already nearly 60,000 citizens of Lovely.

The creator of the site (and King of Lovely, naturally) is comedian and writer Danny Wallace, who posts the occasional video under Citizen TV to keep you up to date with the latest happenings.

There are also lots of really funny and, to be frank, quite potty articles, listed in the various departments sections on the left.

It is one of those sites you just have to browse and be entertained - and if you feel like joining up then it is as easy as filling out the registration form - let us see if the click viewership can push the population of lovely up past that of the Marshall Islands.

Waste Online

The BBC is not responsible for the content of external internet sites.

Finally, a quick look at an information website that is full of rubbish.

Waste Online covers the very unglamorous subject of garbage - how much we make, where it all goes, and what its effects on the planet are.

With so much continued media attention on environmental issues this site's content is highly relevant, especially the sections covering how you can be part of the movement to reduce the amount of rubbish going into landfill sites.

The key sections are easily reached from the opening page, and whilst the section covering legislation is aimed at the European market, the general information about waste and how you can reduce it is applicable the world over.
